Our Focus

Modern-day biology is a data-driven field, thanks largely to the advances in high-throughput sequencing technologies.

The Bioinformatics Lab at De La Salle University brings together faculty members and students interested in deploying the arsenal of computer science and computer engineering to solve problems in computational biology.

We work on algorithms and software for high-throughput sequencing data analysis, bioinformatics for diseases and epidemics, computer architecture for bioinformatics algorithms, and similar topics that bridge computer science and biology.
