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.
