Computational Biology Opportunity and Challenges for the Future
Recent developments in high performance computers and computing methods have opened new avenues for tackling serious, important and challenging problems in biology and medicine. Only a few years back these problems were considered too complex and difficult, if not impossible to solve. An understanding of cross-disciplinary knowledge will be a prerequisite for applications of this enormous computing capability to enhance our understanding of governing principals in biology and medicine. We will show some specific research areas where computational biology can be applied effectively and then provide some ideas on future applications.
