Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS)

About

We carry out research at the interface of computing science and complex biological systems.

We aspire to be among the top 10 world's bio-complexity computing science groups.

We leverage our interdisciplinary expertise in:

  • machine intelligence
  • complex systems 
  • computational biology

We pursue collaborative activities with relevant stakeholders. 

Our aims

We aim to create the next generation of algorithms that provide innovative solutions. 

The problems we focus on are in natural complex systems and synthetic ones. This ranges from biology, chemistry and physics, to biological engineering, health care, and software engineering.

Visit our group website for more information.
