Modern molecular biology produces an ever-increasing flood of data, including DNA and protein sequences, measurements of gene activity, protein structures and images from single molecules to organisms. Computational systems biology research distills raw data into knowledge of how cells and organisms function, both to advance biology and enable advances in biomedicine and bioengineering. To bridge the gap between data and biological knowledge, researchers develop cutting-edge computational methods for data modeling and machine learning, database search and indexing and graphics and vision.

Research in this area includes:

  • Computer Graphics
  • Systems Biology
  • Bioinformatics
  • Computational Genomics
  • Biosequence Comparison
  • Gene Regulation Networks
  • Molecular Modeling
