Mission: The primary goal of the UF Genetics Institute (UFGI) is to harness the diverse academic talents of the genetic research community at UF to improve the well-being of our citizenry. The task of identifying the functions of the individual genes and elucidating the complex interactions between genes will prove to be the key to unlocking their roles. The tools of molecular genetics and biotechnology also will provide the means to translate this improved understanding of genes into practical uses, such as developing new therapies for human and veterinary diseases and improving crop yields.
