Computation & Modeling Research

Computers now play an indispensable role in biology. At Princeton, it's common to see computational biologists working together with wet-lab biologists to address problems that neither could tackle alone. From the mechanics of embryo development and cell division, to information processing by networks of neurons or of proteins, to making sense of large data sets, our computational biologists are bringing new insights to old problems. Research and education in computational biology benefit hugely from the strong connections between Princeton's Molecular Biology, Physics, and Computer Science departments, along with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Indeed, many of our students and postdocs are pursuing joint computational/experimental research projects—excellent training for their futures as fully integrated, modern biologists.
