Advisory Board and Editors Computational Biology

Christian L. Althaus

SNSF Ambizione Research Fellow at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM) at the University of Bern (Switzerland). Christian Althaus' research is focused on modeling the dynamics of infectious diseases within and between hosts. He is a co-founder of the Swiss Meeting for Infectious Disease Dynamics (SMIDDY).

Maria Anisimova

Senior research fellow and lecturer at the Computer Science Departement of ETH Zurich and Swiss Institute for Bioinformatics. Editor of BMC Evol Biol and Trends in Evol Biol. In 2012 edited a book in 2 volumes "Evolutionary Genomics: Statistical and computational methods".

Ugo Bastolla

I got my PhD in Physics at Rome University, working with Luca Peliti and Giorgio Parisi on biologically inspired problems: evolutionary models and Boolean networks. Since then, I have always been interested in computational biology: Protein folding, Stability and population biology constraints in protein evolution, Conformation changes in proteins, Structural evolution of proteins, Theoretical ecology, Ecological interactions among microorganisms.

Gerrit T.S. Beemster

Professor of Biology at the University of Antwerp. Member of the Flemish Science Foundation review board. Editor of the journals Journal of Plant Research, Frontiers in Plant Science and PLOS ONE

Sheila M. Bowyer

Senior Lecturer for the Department of Medical Virology, blood borne virus division, at the University of Pretoria and Senior Medical Scientist for the National Health Laboratory System, Tshwane Academic Division. Responsibilities involve teaching and training, research and the provision of a viral diagnostic service to the public and private sector.

Fiona S. Brinkman

Professor in Bioinformatics and Genomics, Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Simon Fraser University. Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Senior Scholar. Awards include BC Innovation and Science Council YI, Canadian Society of Microbiologists Fisher Award, Womenís Executive Network - Canada's Top 100 Women, TR100 award from MIT.

Christopher D. Brown

Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.

Jeremy A. Bruenn

Ph.D. University of California at Berkeley 1970. Professor, Dept. Biological Sciences, SUNY/Buffalo, 1987-present
Senior Scientist, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, 1999-2002. International Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses 1986-present

Ashley M Buckle

PhD (1994) in the lab of Prof Sir Alan Fersht at Cambridge, followed by postdoc at the MRC Centre Cambridge, making contributions to the understanding of protein stability, molecular recognition and the action of molecular chaperones. I relocated to Monash University, Australia in 2003. My research group uses crystallography, bioinformatics and molecular simulation to understand folding, structure and function.

Vince Calhoun

Dr. Calhoun is currently Executive Science Officer at the Mind Research Network and Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of over 250 full journal articles and over 350 conference proceedings. His focus is the development of data driven approaches for the analysis of brain imaging data, data fusion of multi-modal imaging and genetics data, and the identification of biomarkers for disease.

Fabien Campagne

Assistant Professor at the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). Associate Director, Biomedical Informatics Core, Clinical and Translational Science Center, WCMC. My laboratory specializes on the development of approaches and software tools to enable new discoveries in biology and translational research (e.g., RbDe, GPCR-OKB, Goby, GobyWeb, a few others that did not stick). See for recent projects and biomedical focus.

Kuo-Chen Chou

Chief scientist of Gordon Life Science Institute and Advisory Professor of several Universities.
