Douglas Qian and Wendy Yang, both juniors at Carnegie Mellon University, have been accepted to the Undergraduate Program in Computational Biology in the School of Computer Science.
Method should help scientists understand regulation of gene expression
The first annual bioinformatics symposium is targeted to advanced high school students in the Pittsburgh area, with around 200 expected to participate.
The Computational Biology Department is guaranteeing that all students in its new undergrad degree program will be able to pursue a semester-long research experience.
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 […]
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 […]
Schwartz elected to ISCB Board of Directors, passes torch to new Director of Computational Biology Ph.D Program
Dr. Russell S. Schwartz, Professor of Biological Sciences and Computational Biology, has recently been elected to the Board of Directors for the International Society for Computational Biology, the leading professional society for computational biology and bioinformatics. His election reflects his very significant contributions to research and education in the field. He is well known for […]
The fellowship, a partnership between Intel and ACM SIGHPC, aims to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in computational and data science graduate programs worldwide.
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 […]
