Our Mission

Raise awareness of current content in Computational BiologyBioinformaticsComparative and Functional Genetics and GenomicsSystems Biology, and Molecular Evolution

Sharpen critical assessment of the scientific literature and the science it mediates.

Familiarize with the people, groups and societies having an impact in Computational Biology and allied fields.

Broaden and deepen biological knowledge.

Provide a community of support for the scientfic aims of its participants. 

Our Meetings

Every other Friday from 2.30 p.m. to 3.30 p.m. The room location varies between SE 300 and SE 390. Please come join us!


UC Merced's Computational Biology Journal Club is hosted and organized by Prof. David Ardell and Prof. Carolin Frank

What is Computational Biology?

Bioinformatics: The development of algorithms, statistics, and theory to solve practical and theoretical problems that arise in the management and analysis of biological data. Technique-driven research.

Computational Biology: The scientific investigation of biological hypotheses using computational analysis, simulation, modeling and data integration, towards the discovery and advancement of biological knowledge. Hypothesis-driven research.
