Computational Tools for Biological Applications

Computational tools are playing a rapidly expanding role in biology, both for engineering design and in exploratory science. The main reason is that the dramatic improvements in the measurement and mathematical modeling of basic biochemical and biological processes is making it possible to synthesize large and analytically intractable models of very complicated phenomenon. Many of these generated models are too complicated to be treated with "black-box" numerical algorithms. Instead, aspects of the biological problems must be exploited, or different formulations investigated, to develop computational procedures that are efficient enough to provide timely feedback to a designer or researcher. In this talk, we describe three cases of the development of computational tools for specific... Show More
