Interests & Activities

Computational Biology

Computational Biology is the discipline wherein computers comprise the principal tool for conducting life science research and involves data analysis, mathematical or numerical modeling, and graphical or rule-based simulation. Researchers in the Stone laboratory conduct Computational Biology at multiple levels, including gene, cell, tissue, individual, population, species, and taxon. Details about the research may be obtained by visiting the laboratory pages (via the link above) or contacting Professor Stone .
