Ease into the holidays with a new episode from the CBD Office Visit Series featuring Dr. Wei Wu! We stopped by Wei’s office to for an impromptu chat about her work using computational approaches to complex diseases like asthma and drug addiction. View the video below, and visit our Youtube page for more videos from the CMU Computational […]
We are embarking on a major expansion in the general area of Systems Biology. We intend to make multiple tenure track hires over the next few years in this area. We are looking for researchers pursuing computational and/or experimental approaches, particularly those working on the generation and/or analysis of high throughput genomics and imaging data. […]
We recently held a Facebook Live event with Phillip Compeau, Assistant Teaching Professor in Computational Biology; Robert Murphy, Department Head of Computational Biology; and Kathryn Roeder, Professor of Statistics and Computational Biology; where we took questions about the B.S. in Computational Biology program. Please watch the video below to learn more!
Graduates in High Demand by Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Companies PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Computer Science will launch a new bachelor’s degree program in computational biology next fall, complementing the Computational Biology Department’s existing Ph.D. and master’s degree programs. The undergraduate degree program at one of the world’s leading computer science schools will prepare students […]

CBD Associate Professor Jian Ma Creates Research Tool that Identifies Interactions Involved in Genetic Changes
A new method for analyzing the scrambled genomes of cancer cells gives researchers for the first time the ability to simultaneously identify two different types of genetic changes associated with cancers and to identify connections between the two. CBD Associate Professor Jian Ma said his new algorithm, called Weaver, could become an important tool for […]
We are excited to announce that Dr. Min Xu joined us July 1 as the newest CBD faculty member. He recently finished postdoctoral research with Dr. Frank Alber at the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Program at University of Southern California after completing PhD research with Dr. Xianghong Zhou in the same program. Min is currently […]
