Computational & Systems Biology
Distinguished Seminar Series

Cellular and Systems Biology, Computational Genomics and Bioinformatics, Molecular and Structural Biology, Pharmacology and Drug Design

About Us

Cellular and Systems Biology | Computational Genomics and Bioinformatics | Molecular and Structural Biology | Pharmacology and Drug Design

Increasingly complex biological problems and extremely large biological data sets have necessitated new approaches to answer many of today's current research challenges and tackle emerging questions in biology not amenable to traditional approaches.

As one of the fields in the "New Biologies", Computational and Systems Biology (CSB) encompasses an interdisciplinary approach that harnesses the power of computation and systems-level analyses to formulate and solve critical biological problems. These research programs within CSB also synergize and collaborate with the extensive basic and clinical research programs at the University of Pittsburgh and across the globe.

This seminar series brings together researchers from across the country to discuss their research within our field.
