Structural, Computational Biology, and Biophysics

The study of elucidation of the nature of biological phenomena and disease states through focused examination of the activity, function, and structure of biomolecules. Research is carried out at the molecular level through the study of DNA, RNA, proteins, and other macromolecules involved in genetic and cellular function.
