Understanding the Genetic Basis of Complex Traits from Biobank-scale Data: Statistical and Computational Challenges
Sriram Sankararaman, PhD(University of California, Los Angeles)
The Columbia University Department of Systems Biology brings together researchers specializing in computational biology, experimental biology, and technology development to discover how biological traits emerge from complex molecular networks.
Systems biology and computational biology are becoming increasingly important disciplines in the biological sciences. Through PhD graduate education and postdoctoral training we prepare young scientists to become leaders in this exciting and rapidly growing field.
Our core facilities include centers for next-generation sequencing and high-throughput screening, as well as a high-performance computing center dedicated to research in molecular and systems biology.
