Computational Biology

The Computational Biology-focused PhD program at Johns Hopkins offers an outstanding opportunity for graduate students to actively participate in research labs as they develop analytical and theoretical methods for mathematical and computational modeling techniques from world-renowned faculty.

Biomedical research is being revolutionized by new technologies for generating high throughput data. For example, the mRNA counts contained in gene microarrays provide a global view of cellular activity by simultaneously recording the expression levels of thousands of genes. Similarly, new methods for measuring the expression of proteins in cells and tissues and mapping protein-protein interactions are providing rich sources of information for learning about disease mechanisms. Research in bioinformatics in biomedical engineering and computational medicine is currently focused on representing and analyzing such data.
