Computational Biology

Computational biology combines the power of modern computing and mathematical modeling with biological research to study how systems behave, evolve and adapt. Both UW and Fred Hutch are home to some of the country's top computational biology labs, pushing the boundaries of traditional benchwork in genetics, virology, microbiology and beyond.
