Lab Pictures

We need to assemble more, but here's a sampling of people in and around the lab.

Local Community

We are part of the Computational Biology Group in the Department of Computer Science. We work and share lab space with Mike Brudno and his group.

Please check out the DCS Computational Biology webpage to learn more about our program, students, and faculty.

Gary Bader maintains an excellent list of local PIs working in CompBio.

Go as far as you can see, and when you get there you'll see farther.

-Elbert Hubbard

On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament], "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
-Charles Babbage

The harder I work, the luckier I get.
