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 […]

In addition to his role as an Assistant Teaching Professor, Dr. Compeau will be overseeing the new Computational Biology Undergraduate Program within the School of Computer Science, as well as serving as an assistant director of the MSCB (Master of Science in Computational Biology) program.
Hear Andreas Pfenning talk about the latest AD genetics research today at 11:30am on CBS KD-PG. For more information about Dr. Pfenning’s research, visit his lab’s website.
A new computational method can improve the accuracy of gene expression analyses, which are increasingly used to diagnose and monitor cancers and are a major tool for basic biological research.
PITTSBURGH—Andreas Pfenning, assistant professor in Carnegie Mellon University’s Computational Biology Department, is part of an all-star research team that aims to find new ways to translate genetic findings into new therapies for Alzheimer’s disease.
Presenting the latest episode of the CBD Office Visit Series featuring Dr. Phillip Compeau! We stopped by Phillip’s office to chat about our newest degree, the Bachelor of Science in Computational Biology (BSCB) as well as the Master of Science in Computational Biology (MSCB). View the video below, and visit our Youtube page for more videos from […]
Dr. Andreas Pfenning’s lab will be one of 9 labs to collaborate via the Collaboration to Infer Regulatory Circuits and to Uncover Innovative Therapeutic Strategies (CIRCUITS) two-year, $4 million Cure Alzheimer’s Fund grant! More information about the CIRCUITS grant can be found at http://curealz.org/circuits . Congrats Dr. Pfenning!
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 […]
