We accelerate scientific discovery and innovation by leveraging advanced cyberinfrastructures that enable fast, accurate exploration of large-scale biological and biomedical data.
Our group combines expertise in computer science and computational biology to develop innovative, efficient and scalable algorithms for genomic, metagenomic and medical data analysis.
Examples of our work include:
Responding to the computational and data challenges posed by the life sciences, our group designs algorithms, data structures and implementations that scale from multi- and many-core desktops to petascale systems and beyond.
We have exclusive access to a 520-core InfiniBand computational cluster with 1.66 terabytes of RAM and 2 terabytes of backed-up disk storage.
UB’s Center for Computational Research hosts and manages this cluster.
Our group offers opportunities for trainees from undergraduate students to postdoctoral associates.
Working in our group increases your competence in high-performance computing and multiple data analytics techniques for the life sciences.
Graduate students and postdoctoral associates conduct supervised research. Undergraduate students shadow senior colleagues and complete tasks within research projects.
You’ll also build your knowledge by participating in weekly group discussions and research presentations.
