Biosimulation & Modeling

Biosimulation image courtesy of Prof. Ajay GopinathanOur interdisciplinary research group of biologists, chemists, physicists, engineers, and applied mathematicians at the newest University of California is applying and developing ground-breaking techniques to understand the fundamental mechanisms of reactions, interactions, evolution, and dynamics in complex biological systems.

We actively seek collaborations with both theorists and experimentalists; please see our People page to learn more about our areas of expertise.

Students in the Biosimulation & Modeling research cluster will gain a set of common skills essential for quantitative modeling and scientific computing. This includes knowledge of Linux, shell scripting (bash, csh), and basic programming, and various areas of simulation such as molecular modeling techniques (all-atom, coarse grained and continuum), network dynamics, and molecular evolution.
