Knowing a protein’s structure structure is vitally important because the 3D structure of a protein defines its function, and greater, more accurate knowledge of these structures could help with breakthroughs in several key areas.
The problem-solving methods and solutions found in computer science are some of reasons students like Debswapna Bhattacharya pursue the discipline. Not only are there numerous opportunities for a successful personal future throughout the world, but also the opportunities for discoveries in the field are infinite.
Jianlin Cheng, associate professor of computer science, and doctoral students Jilong Li and Jie Hou recently developed RNAMiner, a website making it easier for those in the biological sciences to analyze genomic and transcriptomic data.
Eight engineering undergraduates will travel to Jefferson City on March 10 to discuss and explain their research projects to state lawmakers.
For some, the ability to turn personal success into lessons that teach others how to achieve the same success is the most rewarding. Such is the case for two alumni as both start their careers in academia.
Zhang Wang, who earned his doctorate in computer science at MU in 2012, accepted a professorship at The University of Southern Mississippi last May to teach and conduct new research.
A computer science student will soon make his final departure from MU, making the momentous jump from pupil to teacher. Jesse Eickholt, doctoral candidate in computer science, accepted an assistant professorship with Central Michigan University (CMU) where he will start in July.
There are the astronomical odds to predicting protein structures. MULTICOM and MUFOLD — two MU College of Engineering protein structure prediction teams — competed in the most recent Critical Assessment of protein Structure Prediction competition.
Jianlin Cheng, an MU associate professor of computer science, has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to design and develop computational methods to unlock the mysteries of genome folding and function through 3D visualization of genomic structures. Cheng refers to the genome as the book of life. Nearly 60 years have passed since James […]
Jianlin “Jack” Cheng, an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Missouri, has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Considered NSF’s most prestigious award, it provides five years of project funding intended to support career-development activities of teacher-scholars, giving them a solid base for a lifetime of integrated contributions to research and […]
