Computational Biology

Computational Biology is the development and application of data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study of biological, behavioral, and social systems. The computational biology research within the AI lab focusses on different topics like the identification and analysis of the information processing capacity of proteins, the analyses of diseases like CML through the use of a mathematical model of the hematopoietic system and assisting public health officials on mitigation of infectious diseases (influenza, HIV etc.) through the study of epidemiological models.
