Computational biology and Bioinformatics address critical challenges related to the life sciences, and those posed to human health, habitat and well-being. Research effort in this field is mainly focused on refining computational methods for diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The target is closely aligned with my personal goals, and I am honored to be a member of this community.
