Hi, I'm David Fenyo I'm a professor here at NYU medical center and my research focus is computational biology.
Hello, my name is Jef Boeke and I'm the director of the new Institute for Systems Genetics.
The idea of the Institute for Systems genetics is to bring together researchers from different fields.
In a unique environment where we can work together on complex biological problems that can be tackled from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Institute for Computational Medicine is our newest initiative on campus. And aims to use processing of data from single cells to learn more about diseases like cancer and how they evolve and possibly help develop therapies against those.
These fields are the future of the biomedicine because to be able to handle all the large data sets that people generate we really need to develop new computational methods.
They are covering topics from deciphering the dark matter in the human genome to digging into the inside of cells and their biophysical properties, all and using creative new methods that they've developed.
