Revision as of 22:43, 16 December 2007


Welcome to the main Bioinformatics and Computational Biology portal at Boston College Biology! The Boston College Biology department currently has 23 full-time faculty, with active experimental research in areas spanning cell cycle Biology, infection and immunity, molecular cell Biology, developmental Biology, and neuroscience. The department is housed in Higgins Hall, a new, $80+ million research building on our Chestnut Hill Campus.

Computational Biology / Bioinformatics research labs

Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field which includes mathematical modeling, the design, implementation and application of algorithms to answer fundamentally important questions in Biology. Bioinformatics is a new research area at Boston College, with a growing number of faculty and substantial investments by the University. Computational Biology research specialities in the department currently include the study of genetic variations, human population and medical genetics (Prof. Gabor Marth), comparative genomics and gene regulation (Prof. Jeff Chuang), and computational RNA and protein structure predictions (Prof. Peter Clote). For futher details please visit the web sites of these laboratories:

Gabor Marth, D.Sc. ( Washington University in St. Louis)
Polymorphism discovery, population and medical genetics, computational pharmacogenetics.
Jeffrey Chuang, Ph.D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
Molecular evolution and gene regulation.
Peter Clote, Ph.D. (Duke University)
Biomedical structure prediction, RNA and protein folding.

In addition, several other faculty members are affiliated with Bioinformatics research at the Biology Department. Computational projects involving these laboratories are possible by arrangement:

Mohammed Shahabuddin Ph.D. (University of Edinburgh)
Biology of disease transmission by insects. Malaria Biology.
Stephen Wicks, Ph.D. (University of British Columba)
Neurobiology of the chemosensory system; Biology of the nematode C. elegans.
Marc Muskavitch, Ph.D. (Stanford University)
Molecular cell biology of Notch signaling during development. Molecular cell biology of host-pathogen interactions in vector insects.

Graduate Studies in Bioinformatics

The Biology Department at Boston College is accepting applications for students who wish to pursue their studies in the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology towards a Ph.D. degree in Biology. These students will be taking a core of courses in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics that are integrated with a comprehensive Biology curriculum (including graduate Genetics, Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology). Recent new facilities include a computer teaching laboratory, and a Beowulf style computer cluster. Bioinformatics students will pursue research at the forefront of of modern Computational Biology, while also having the opportunity to complement their studies in experimental Biology laboratories.
