Computational and Systems Biology
What is Computational and Systems Biology?
Applying high-performance computation, large-scale informatics, and control systems to very large-scale cell networks in order to generate a new understanding of human health.

Graduate researcher spotlight
Bioengineering Ph.D. candidate Walden Li currently works in bioengineering professor Paul Jensen's lab where he researches microbial metabolism.
The Jensen lab specifically works with bacteria that cause cavities and tooth decay in humans. Students are also building computational models to better understand how different bacteria interact with each other at a systems level.
