Computational biology

Computational biology involves the application of mathematics, statistics, and computer science to the study of biology.

The focus of our research is to make sense of biomedical data and biological systems. We use tools such as high performance computing with the aim of understanding and curing disease.

Computational biology research at WEHI

The disciplines of computational biology and bioinformatics play key roles in basic and translational research at WEHI. As well as having a dedicated Bioinformatics division, we have researchers with expertise in computational biology and bioinformatics embedded in many other divisions. The Centre for Computational Biology brings these research scientists together.
