Informatics and Genomics

Interdisciplinary research that uses computer science, statistics, mathematics and engineering to analyze large datasets of biological information. A focus on genetic and epigenetic data at the whole genome and multi-genomes-level are applied to elucidate new understanding in diverse basic biological and translational fields of study.
