IBM Labs | The IBM Computational Biology Center embraces activities at Yorktown Heights, with strong affiliations with activities at Almaden and other IBM Research Centers. Computational Biology (CompBio), including bioinformatics, is the study of how computer systems can manage, analyze, and simulate the complex structures and processes in living systems.
CompBio Research at IBM spans pattern recognition in sequences, structures and processes; the studying of systems ranging from single protein molecules to complex molecular interactions; and the data analysis, interpretation and reverse-engineering of complex disease-lifestyle-genomic interactions for fuller biological understanding. CompBio is inherently a multi-disciplinary field with important applications in biology, chemical physics, materials science, agriculture, chemistry and ultimately nanotechnology.
