What is Quantitative Biological Modeling?

Our core premise is that what scientists really want through "data analysis" is to understand cause and effect, and ultimately, to discover how to control systems to produce a desired outcome. From an applied mathematical perspective, this desire is a wish for dynamical models that can accurately describe them. We are a group of researchers committed to teaching and learning the relevant mathematical techniques, numerical methods, and data/statistical analysis and using these methods to develop predictive models relevant to current problems in experimental and computational biology.

Moving Into The Future

“If I were a senior or first-year graduate student interested in biology, I would migrate as fast as I could into the field of computational biology...” -- Francis Collins
