I would appreciate it if anyone who knows of graduate programs in
computational molecular biology in the U.S. could give me information
I know of at least four graduate programs with explicit emphasis on
* University of Pittsburgh (in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon). A new
program in computational biology, funded by the Keck Foundation. For
information on that program, contact Bruce Buchanan
(buchanan at cs.pitt.edu).
* George Mason University. A new program in Computational Science and
Informatics. [I am currently teaching the bioinformatics course there.]
For more information, contact Harold Morowitz (hmorowitz at gmuvax.gmu.edu)
or John Evans (jevans at gmuvax2.gmu.edu).
* Washington State University, Pullman. A program in computational science
including biology that has been going for at least three years. For more
information, contact Keith Dunker (dunker at bobcat.csc.wsu.edu).
* Washington University, St. Louis. They have just instituted a new
Institute for Biological Computing, which will begin admitting students
next fall. For more information contact David States
(states at wucs1.wustl.edu).
In addition, there are some longstanding programs in medical informatics that
now include some emphasis on computational biology:
* Stanford Medical School. One of the nation's best medical informatics
programs, recently hired Russ Altman to teach computational biology. For
information, contact Ted Shortliffe (shortliffe at sumex-aim.stanford.edu)
* Yale Medical School. Also has expanded its informatics program to include
computational biology. For information, contact Perry Miller
(pmiller at biomed.med.yale.edu)
And there are many departments of computer science or biology which offer
the possibility of pursuing studies in computational biology. This is
certainly not an exhaustive list. My appologies to anyone I left out; I
welcome updates and corrections!
