The computational biology laboratory of the Sapienza University in Rome is a multidisciplinary Unit established in 2001 composed by physicists, computer scientists, engineers, chemists, pharmaceutical chemists, biotechnologists and biologists.
Our group research activities are devoted to the computational analysis of biological data, to the development and improvement of methods for the analysis of genomes and proteomes and to the applications of methods to problems of biomedical interest.
The group is involved in many world-wide initiatives aimed at analysing post-genomic biological data in order to improve our understanding of life at a molecular level.
About the University of Rome, La Sapienza
With over 700 years of history and 145,000 students, Sapienza is the largest university in Europe and the second largest in the world after Cairo University. The “decongestion” process, started in 1999 by the approval of specific statutes and re-launched in 2005, has led to the creation of five confederate universities including 21 faculties and more than 100 departments. At Sapienza there are more than 4,500 professors along with 5,000 administrative and technical staff. Sapienza carries out leading scientific investigations in almost all disciplines, achieving results of the highest standard both on a national and an international level. There are presently more than 150 Ph.D. programs, 111 departments and 30 research centers devoted to scientific research.
