Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science at the interface of biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics, and computer science. Its goal is developing and applying computational approaches to studies of life processes and improvement of human health. In the postgenomic era, Bioinformatics is of primary importance to basic, clinical and applied science in academia, industry, and many other segments of society. Current research interests in our group include simulations of molecular recognition, protein dynamics, and macromolecular assemblies in biological networks.
