The Bioinformatics Research Group


The BiRG lab meetings for Fall, 2012 will be Thursdays at 10:00AM in 390 Joshi. All Wright State University students (graduate and undergraduate), faculty, and staff with an interest in bioinformatics research are welcome to join us. Click here for the current BiRG/Knoesis lab meeting schedule.


About the BiRG

If you don’t work on important problems, it’s not likely that you’ll do important work. — Richard Hamming
We develop algorithms to investigate problems in biochemistry and molecular biology. From the encoding of heritable information in DNA to the structure and function of proteins, we are currently pursuing investigations that span a broad range of biological questions. Our research interests include pattern analysis in high-dimensionality data sets, evolutionary computation and optimization, and multivariate statistics. We apply our research to a variety of problems from biochemistry and molecular biology. We currently have projects underway in metabolomics, molecular evolution, protein structure, and neuroscience. We are a part of Knoesis - the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge Enabled Computation.
