Computational biology

Discover the fascinating world of computational biology and how it revolutionizes the study of life. Learn about the latest research, tools, and applications in this rapidly evolving field.
Challenges in Computational Biology

This course is offered to undergraduates and addresses several algorithmic challenges in computational biology. The principles of algorithmic design for biological datasets are studied and existing algorithms analyzed for application to real datasets. Topics covered include: biological sequence analysis, gene identification, regulatory motif discovery, genome assembly, genome duplication and rearrangements, evolutionary theory, clustering algorithms, and scale-free networks.

i applied for the MSRP-BIO research program at MIT to focus on my computational biology skills this summer. with spelman not offering a course in computational biology, it was important for that to be my focus this summer as i am going into my senior year and applying for MD/PhD post-bacc programs. Thankfully, I was accepted and will be heading to MIT this summer! Summer, Bio, Third, I Win, Personal Goals, Acceptance, Post, Senior Year, Focus
