The Computational Biology Program uses mathematics, statistics and computing to generate new discoveries in cancer. We develop new models, algorithms and software tools, and apply these to make sense of cancer data. This includes whole genome, exome, transcriptome and epigenome sequencing data.
Our research interests encompass:
- bioinformatics algorithm and methods development
- computational cancer biology
- cancer evolution and genomics
- software tool development
- personalised medicine.
The program includes research laboratories, as well as the Bioinformatics Consulting Core and the Research Computing Facility. Scientists come from a range of disciplines including biology, computer science, mathematics and statistics, as well as software engineering. Many researchers in the program hold joint appointment with other programs or institutes.
