Bioinformatics

This programme seeks to study and understand biological function through a mixture of wet and dry approaches, from molecular building blocks to genome and systems-wide features, which they aim to model and predict. This predictive biology has been brought about by a number of factors, including the growing numbers of gene/protein sequences in the databases and a similar expansion in the molecular structures of proteins available to study.
