Molecular and Computational Biology

The faculty and students in the Molecular and Computational Biology section share the common approaches of molecular biology, computational biology and genetics, yet they are extremely diverse in the way they apply these approaches to specific biological systems. Faculty research interests range from prokaryotic regulatory mechanisms to fruit fly aging to the interpretation of the human genome project and bioinformatics.

The variety of biological problems provides a wide range of choices for graduate student projects, while overlapping research interests encourage interactions among students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty in the different laboratories.
