About the Graduate Program

Training emphasizes areas and problems in which a combination of computational approaches in different scales of length or time is necessary to understand the origins of biological function or structure. There are active research projects in the areas of quantum mechanical calculations, structural and statistical thermodynamics, atomic level and coarse grained modeling of biomacromolecular structures, their dynamics and structural transformations, macromolecular recognition and assembly, molecular motors, bioinformatics, analysis of microarray data, biological networks, dynamics of gene regulation and signal transduction, cell signaling and metabolic engineering, and structural bioinformatics.
