Current and former students, faculty and staff members gathered this past weekend to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Computational Biology Department becoming the first of its kind in the country to be part of a computer science school. Established as the Ray and Stephanie Lane Center for Computational Biology in 2007, it became an academic unit within […]
President Jahanian welcomes everyone to the 10th Anniversary celebration
Hamim Zafar and Chieh (Jessica) Lin have been recognized for their outstanding poster presentation, Single-cell Lineage Tracing by Integrating CRISPR-Cas9 Mutations With Transcriptomic Data, at the ISBM/ECCB 2019 Conference which concluded this July in Basel, Switzerland. Hamim, a Lane Fellow postdoctoral researcher in the Computation Biology Department at Carnegie Mellon University, presented the poster and […]
Automated instruments have revolutionized biomedical research, but the choice of experiments to be done is still made by scientists. At the AAAS 2019 Annual Meeting, Dr. Murphy will talk about the challenges of scale for constructing predictive models for complex biological systems and his group’s work on using automated systems in which experiments are chosen […]
The first Workshop on the Future of Algorithms in Biology was successfully held last month at the Computational Biology Department at Carnegie Mellon University.
We are very pleased that six papers by members of the Computational Biology Department (CBD) have been accepted for presentation at ISMB 2018, one of the most selective computational biology conferences. ISMB 2018 accepted 65 papers out of a total of 331 submissions. This year’s results continue Carnegie Mellon’s leadership in accepted papers at ISMB […]
Two first year students in our Computational Biology Ph.D. program and one recent graduate of the M.S. in Computational Biology program have had papers accepted for ISMB 2018, a top conference in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Xiangrui Zeng’s paper, titled “An integration of fast alignment and maximum-likelihood methods for electron subtomogram averaging and classification, proposes […]
Multiple members of Carl Kingsford’s group have had their papers accepted to ISMB 2018.
Based on analysis by csrankings.org, Carnegie Mellon is the front-runner in computational biology. The rankings are based upon accepted proceedings papers at the top computational biology conferences, ISMB and RECOMB. These conferences typically accept only around 15% of submitted papers and the number of accepted papers over many years is a strong indication of Carnegie […]
Ruan, a Computational Biology Ph.D. student, had his first first-author paper published this week in the ISMB Proceedings issue of Bioinformatics.
