Genome of blue-fronted Amazon parrot compared with 30 other bird species Parrots are famously talkative, and a blue-fronted Amazon parrot named Moises – or at least its genome – is telling scientists volumes about the longevity and highly developed cognitive abilities that give parrots so much in common with humans. Perhaps someday, it will also […]
CMU’s scQuery Web Server Uses New Method To Determine Cell Types, Identify Key Genes Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say neural networks and supervised machine learning techniques can efficiently characterize cells that have been studied using single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq). This finding could help researchers identify new cellsubtypes and differentiate between healthy and diseased […]
Beginning June 29, 2019, the Computational Biology Department will be offering one of the world’s first summer programs in computational biology designed exclusively for high school students. In our three-week program, students will learn the computational and laboratory skills needed in modern biology. Our pre-college program will highlight the interplay between generating biological datasets in the lab […]
Computational Biology Faculty We are seeking to hire new tenure-track faculty who share our vision for how computational biology can drive biomedical research. Our department is a world leader in the development and implementation of rigorous computational approaches to biomedical research problems. We are seeking applications from candidates in all research areas of computational biology and whose work is […]
The first Workshop on the Future of Algorithms in Biology was successfully held last month at the Computational Biology Department at Carnegie Mellon University.
