Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems

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

Interdisciplinary expertise

The Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) research group is the premier computational biology group within Newcastle University’s Computer Science department. We are the only group with both microbiology and nanotechnology wet labs and an intelligent biofoundry.

Our mission is to carry out ground-breaking research at the interface of computing science and complex biological systems. We create the next generation of algorithms which provide innovative solutions to problems arising in natural complex systems (such as biology, chemistry and physics) as well as synthetic systems (such as biological or software engineering and healthcare).
