Biology has become a data rich science. The amount and complexity of data produced in biology now exceeds that of any other scientific field. As a consequence, statistical analysis and mathematical modeling are becoming ever more crucial ingredients in many areas of biology, including genetics, cell biology, structural biology, development and evolution.
Many groups at EMBL include researchers with a focus on mathematics and statistics, and several groups specialise in these fields:
Computational and evolutionary genomics
Mathematical modeling of cellular processes
Network modeling applied to medical questions
