  • Next generation sequencing data analysis, applications, and software and tools.
  • Big data science including storage, analysis, modeling and visualization
  • Personalized medicine and translational bioinformatics
  • Drug discovery, design, and repurposing
  • Proteomics, and protein structure prediction, molecular simulation and evolution
  • Image analysis and processing

    Systems Biology:

  • Modeling and simulation of biological processes, pathways, and networks
  • Mathematical and quantitative models of cellular and multi-cellular systems
  • Multi-dimensional omics data integration
  • Synthetic biological systems
  • Metalobolomics
  • Self-organization in living systems (cells, organisms, swarms, ecosystems, etc.)
  • Applications of systems biology approaches to biomedical studies

    Intelligent Computing:

  • Machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery
