The Centre for Computational Biology champions a multidisciplinary approach to research and teaching in Data Sciences for Life Sciences. Our researchers link the fields of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Sciences to Biology and Medicine, while reaching a broad community of data scientists on campus. We lead the development of novel integrative and analytical approaches to data starting with Omics and Clinical.
Our Data Sciences experts have partnered with scientists and healthcare professionals of Chengdu’s West China Hospital – one of China’s biggest and best hospitals – to help link innovative ‘Omics’ data with clinical information for a range of conditions. This collaborative working is vital to help transform the lives of patients, as well as understanding the cause of diseases.
