Iowa State University
Laurence H. Baker Center for
Bioinformatics & Biological Statistics

Welcome


We facilitate and enhance research in bioinformatics and biological statistics by fostering interactions and communication among the faculty, outside laboratories, granting agencies, and companies.

The Laurence H. Baker Center engages in research to:

  • develop computational, graphical, statistical, mathematical, algorithmic, and systems methods to interpret or mine information from biological data
  • apply quantitative approaches in biology
  • bridge separate experimental biology areas with creative and innovative computational approaches
  • impact biology by incorporating more quantitative studies
  • bring new technologies to the interface between biology and the quantitative sciences

The Center's research excellence is demonstrated strongly by members' grant successes. Grant funding for Center Members continues to Increase at an all-time high rate.
