Research Focuses

SYSTEMS BIOLOGY
• The coordinated study of biological systems by investigating the components of cellular networks and their interactions, by applying experimental high-throughput and whole-genome techniques, and integrating computational methods with experimental efforts.

COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
• Focused on the development and application of analytic and theoretical methods, of data processing, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques, toward the study of biological systems.

BIOINFORMATICS
• An interdisciplinary field mainly involving molecular biology and genetics, computer science, mathematics, and statistics.
