Faculty in the Center for Bioinformatics and Biological Statistics engage in research to develop computational, graphical, statistical, mathematical, or algorithmic methods to interpret or mine information from biological data; apply quantitative approaches in biology; and bridge separate experimental biology areas with creative computational approaches. Data can originate from molecular, cellular, anatomical, physiological, population, ecological, and systems studies. The mission of the Center is to facilitate and enhance research in bioinformatics and biological statistics by fostering communications among the faculty, external laboratories, and granting agencies. Another important role of the Center is to inform diverse researchers about new opportunities for applications in biology. The 80+ faculty have their homes in 17 diverse departments and research units.
