Assorted Computational Biology Problems
Faculty Involved: Brendan Mumey
We are currently investigating problems in protein surface structure prediction (using a novel algorithm for mapping the epitope surface of a protein) and computational methods for investigating the dynamics of gene regulation using DNA microarrays (joint work with Tomas Gedeon in the math department).
This work is currently unsupported but we expect to submit a large NIH grant soon in conjunction with investigators in the departments of chemistry and microbiology. Previous work has been supported by NSF grant #9978582, amount $95,649.
Opportunities exist for research-interested students at the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D.
