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 and software to tackle some of the most challenging and interesting data intensive problems in the life sciences. Our research interests include pattern analysis in high-dimensionality data sets, multivariate statistics, evolutionary computation and optimization, computational science, cloud computing, and eScience. We apply our research to a variety of problems from fields such as biochemistry and molecular biology. We currently have multidisciplinary projects underway in metabolomics, human cognition, toxicology, and immunology.

Director: Dr. Paul Anderson
