What is Computational Biology?
Spectacular developments in biomedical sciences have occurred over the past 20 years due to advances in biomedical imaging, genomics and proteomics. These changes have created a need to organize, analyze and interpret large amounts of data, and to devise new ways to modify biological function.
Computational Biologists, who apply computer science techniques to complex biological problems, are devoted to developing these kinds of analyses. They must be must be well trained in biology, mathematics, and computer science.
