Overview

Pre-College Computational Biology provides extensive training in both cutting-edge laboratory experiments to generate biological data and the computational analysis of the data that these experiments generate.

Biological and medical research have become fully fledged computational disciplines. Tomorrow's life scientists will need deep knowledge of not only the laboratory techniques for generating experimental data but also the rigorous computational techniques necessary to analyze and model these data. The Pre-College Computational Biology program offers an unparalleled experience for high school students to explore this relationship in a university setting.

After sampling water from one of Pittsburgh’s three rivers, students will isolate the bacterial DNA from the water and break the DNA strands into millions of tiny fragments that are then sequenced. Students will then build algorithms to identify the species of microorganisms present in the water samples and construct an evolutionary tree determining how they've evolved.
