Computational Biology

The research group in Computational Biology was established in 2005. The research group collaborates closely with other groups locally, nationally and internationally with the aim to form a strong, comprehensive research and learning environment in computational biology at NMBU.

The increasing use of methods from mathematics, computer science and theoretical physics in the exploration of biological systems is one of the hallmarks of today's science. This is due to great advances in the understanding of living systems, the establishment of new experimental techniques providing large amounts data, methodological advances in mathematical modelling, and the continuing growth in available computer power for numerical calculations and simulations.

The three main research fields are:

  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Image analysis of energy and environmental applications
  • Complex dynamics of biological systems
