Bioinformatics

Our research in bioinformatics is concerned with the processing and managing of biological data to understand living systems and guide decisions about them, mostly at the molecular level. By organizing and systemizing data to develop algorithms, we make inferences about that data to aid research in computational biology, biomedical informatics and clinical informatics. Through the use of genetic and genomic data, our research allows us to better understand the core causes of disease and use big data to attack biological problems at their root.
