Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary area dedicated to answering questions arising from the genome revolution. It spans multiple areas in computer science, including algorithms for combinatorial optimization, machine learning, data management, and scientific computing. It brings together scientists and engineers from many fields, including computer science, molecular biology, genomics, genetics, mathematics, statistics, and physics. The Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is organized as a center within the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), an interdisciplinary research institute supporting high-performance computing research across the College Park campus.
