Ruan, a Computational Biology Ph.D. student, had his first first-author paper published this week in the ISMB Proceedings issue of Bioinformatics.
We are very pleased to announce the two newest additions to our prestigious and selective Lane Fellows program. Dr. Jose Lugo-Martinez received his Ph.D. in Computer Science (with a minor in Bioinformatics) from Indiana University, working with Predrag Radivojac. Since his graduation in December 2016, he has remained at IU as a fellow in their […]
William Casazza During his time at CMU, William worked in Dr. Schwartz’s lab, revisiting algorithms for building optimal maximum parsimony phylogenetic trees from tissue variation data (e.g. sequencing data, copy number variants and protein sequence data). The model that William reconstructed looks at how certain cells changed from one state to another. Next year, William […]
We are very pleased that Hosein Mohimani will be joining us as an Assistant Professor. He received his B.Sc. in mathematics and EE from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, and Ph.D. in ECE from the University of California, San Diego working with internationally recognized computational biology leader Pavel Pevzner. He worked for a year and […]
Chaya Wurman, a sophomore, has recently been accepted as the first School of Computer Science student in the Undergraduate Program in Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon University. A former student in the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Chaya has been active in campus organizations, including ChemE Car, where she led a team to develop a […]
RECOMB-Seq, a workshop held immediately following the RECOMB conference, focuses on improving sequence data management, analysis and interpretation by applying statistical and algorithmic approaches. This year, the Computational Biology Department represents approximately 12% of the accepted proceedings papers: Mingfu Shao and Carl Kingsford. Theory and Algorithm for the Minimum Path Flow Decomposition Problem Hongyi Xin, […]
Proceedings papers acceptances recently came out for the top two computational biology conferences, Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) and Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB). ISMB 2017 We are very pleased that 5 papers by members of the Computational Biology Department (CBD) have been accepted for presentation at ISMB 2017 – only 16% of […]
Monday, April 24th, 2017 GHC 7101 9:00AM Title: Understanding Tumor Composition and Evolution Through Geometric Models Abstract: Despite rapid progress in the understanding and treatment of disease over the course of the past 100 years, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has become a focal point for basic science research. As a result, advances have been made in quantifying […]
From Hi-C maps to Chromosome Dynamics and Cross-Correlations between Gene Loci This is the first structure-based study of chromosomal dynamics using elastic network models, between the Bahar and Kingsford labs. In this study, we constructed Gaussian Network Models (GNM) for chromosome structures based on Hi-C maps. The GNM analysis permits us to predict chromatin mobility […]
