About the BiRG

If you don’t work on important problems, it’s not likely that you’ll do important work. — Richard Hamming

From the encoding of heritable information in DNA to the structure and function of proteins, we are currently pursuing investigations that span a broad range of biological questions. Our research interests include pattern analysis in high-dimensionality data sets, evolutionary computation and optimization, machine learning, and multivariate statistics. We apply these techniques to a wide variety of problems from biochemistry and molecular biology. We currently have projects underway in metabolomics, genomics, molecular evolution, and protein structure modeling. We are a part of Knoesis - the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge Enabled Computation.
