Our students are trained comprehensively to work at the interface of computational and life sciences, bridging people from multidisciplines to tackle complex biological problems.
Our students are equipped with knowledge and research skills necessary for pursuing high-impact research. See our Research page for a wide variety of research topics to choose from.
We prepare our students to work cooperatively with people from different disciplines and cultures so they are ready to join multicultural communities. See where our graduates work and study further degrees worldwide.
Claire works on the genetic basis of a bacterial pathogen that causes “melioidosis”, a disease which is highly endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia and leads to death in 40% and 20% of those affected, respectively. As no vaccines are currently available, reducing morbidity and mortality caused by melioidosis is a key research question. Claire is using bioinformatics to predict bacterial genetic factors that influence the disease outcomes and severity. Ultimately, a better understanding of the bacterial components could improve our ability to manage this disease.Learn More
Kanthida has applied bioinformatics, machine learning, and statistical analysis to study living organisms in different areas such as medical, agricultural and environmental research. For example, she analyzed expression profiles of endometrial cancer for identification of prognostic biomarkers. Currently, she focuses on metagenomics to the study of the microbiome in different environments, such as, microbiome in wastewater treatment systems, coffee tree, and pig gut.Learn More
With the availability of new generation of genome sequencing platforms, DNA sequencing has become a common technique for tackling new biological questions. Dr. Weerayuth develops computational pipelines that facilitate the genome sequence data analyses and comparisons. His bioinformatics approaches have facilitated the understanding of the functional contents and evolutionary relationships of various organisms, as well as clinical insights of various diseases.Learn More
Teeraphan uses mathematical modeling and computer simulation to study how simple interactions between biological components (e.g., molecules, genes, individual organisms) give rise to complex macroscopic behaviors of the system (e.g., cell-decision making, democratic nest-site selecting in bees). His current interests include systems biology of photosynthesis, collective decision-making in microbes, and social behavior of bee colonies.Learn More
