2005. 05. 25.

CALDWELL (Idaho)- Albertson College of Idaho is celebrating its expanding math and science departments, and the community is invited to share in the celebration. The CofI math and science recently set up a server that will allow them to do bioinformatics research, and they will reveal the new technology at a gathering on Thursday, May 26 at 5:30pm in the chemistry department on the second floor of Boone Hall on the CofI campus.

Both the math and science departments will use the cutting edge technology to study bioinformatics, which is the science of managing and analyzing biological data using advanced computing techniques. The new technology can be used for biology, chemistry, physics, math, and even computer science research.

Albertson College of Idaho is the state's oldest and longest continuously accredited private, residential liberal arts institution. With an average class size of 10, students receive personal attention from faculty members dedicated to teaching. CofI was recently named a "Best Value" by the Princeton Review and was ranked 11th in the nation by the same publication for Professors Bring Material to Life. CofI recently received a $17 million grant from the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.
