The goal of the program is to provide students with a broad education in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics based on strong foundations in Computer Science, Biology and Mathematics. The curriculum includes practical experiences with experimental biology and computer science as cooperation and communication are key to success in this highly interdisciplinary field. The program should be open for qualified students all over the world.
DLI is interested in problems in the area of bioinformatics, in particular modeling and simulation of molecular sequence data. We like to work on problems close to the fundamentals, like sequence analysis and modeling of evolution,phylogenetic trees of species and especially some controversial and difficult phylogenies,etc. Currently the group is pursuing large-scale computational problems.
