Reprogramming Stem Cells: Computational Biology

Computational Biology is the branch of biology which involves the development of data-analytics and theoretical methods. It also includes the application of computer science to the understanding of mathematical modelling and computational simulation techniques regarding the studies of biological behavioural and social systems. Understanding dynamic cellular processes such as development, reprogramming, repair, differentiation is all fundamentally about the field of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. Modern high throughput molecular profiling technologies is the vital approach to address the questions of profiling of tens of thousands of genes products in a single experiment. In these cases, bioinformatics takes the chance to interpret the information produced by these technologies.
