For Prospective Students

The research activities of our interdisciplinary group span a broad spectrum, from the traditional genome mining to computational evolution, and even include physics based approaches in structural biology. Please see the full list of CBB faculty and their research areas. Also see associated CBB course offerings.

The group is always looking for dedicated students with a strong interest in solving biologically motivated problems with computational means. If you are interested in joining the group, please contact individual faculty members whose area of specialization matches your background and interests. Also, see the pages about the graduate program in the Department of Computer Science, as well as the interdisciplinary PhD Program in Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology (GBCB). Many CS CBB faculty members are also on the GBCB faculty.

The field of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CBB) is growing and so is the demand for scientists trained in it, both in industry and academia. The problem solving skills that our students pick up allow them to be competitive both in the CBB field, as well as in the more traditional job market.
