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 […]

Bob Murphy and his collaborator Christoph Wülfing from the University of Bristol have just received grants from a new program encouraging collaboration between U.S. and U.K. investigators. The program, run jointly by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.K. Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, allows the investigators to submit a single proposal […]
Noora Jassim Al-Muftah is the first graduate from Carnegie Mellon University-Qatar’s Computational Biology program; just today, she received her diploma at the graduation ceremony. Noora graduated with both College and University Honors for exceptional academic performance. “Noora is very dedicated, her work has been brilliant, and we are very proud that she is our first […]
Cells often need to respond to signals received through surface receptors, and their responses involve changes in the spatial arrangement of proteins with the cell. For example, T cells receive signals through the T cell receptor (TCR) to indicate the presence of a particular antigen that they should respond to, and an additional signal through […]
CBD Business Manager Melissa (“Missy”) Tetrick received the “Rookie of the Year” staff award from the School of Computer Science. The award was presented by CBD Professor Russell Schwartz during the SCS Founders Day celebration. “I was really surprised and grateful to be thought of. It’s an honor to be recognized for the work that […]
