Computational biophysics

In the age of the “omits” (proteomics, structural genomics, metabolomics, …) it has become increasingly important to have computational models that can analyze and interpret the vast quantities of data that are being collected.  UNC has expertise in a wide variety of computational methods including: protein modeling, network modeling, drug discovery, image processing, and bioinformatics.  The biophysics program interacts closely with the UNC program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and offers a joint training program.  Most computational efforts on campus benefit strongly from the university core facility for research computing.
