The Computational & Synthetic Biology group has several faculty with primary appointments in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering. In addition, we have more than a dozen adjunct and affiliate faculty from many different biology programs. Collectively, we have a great diversity of interests that span a wide range of computational topics of biomedical relevance, from molecules to organisms. Our vibrant student and postdoctoral community and our successful alumni have been instrumental in these interdisciplinary projects. Joint mentoring of students and postdoctoral fellows by faculty from multiple departments is common and encouraged
