Profiles in "Computational Biology" Expertise Area

  • Wilson is a computational evolutionary biologist studying sex-biased processes including human and non-human health and disease.
  • Gerkin investigates how smell perception, learning and behavior are represented in the brain. He also pursues neuroinformatics, development of tools and standards to facilitate analysis of neuroscience models and data.
  • Watanabe develops mathematical models of biological systems to better understand and predict how chemicals in the environment cause adverse effects in living organisms.
  • Šulc’s research focuses on application of computational modeling and statistical physics approaches to complex systems.
  • Shrivastava uses biology, physics, and bioinformatics to find factors that shape spatial structure of the microbiome. His lab aims to find how changes in the microbiome correlate with the occurrence of diseases.
