The BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology provides support for research and graduate education in biology at the interface with the mathematical and physical sciences; facilitates interactions among experimentalists and theoreticians working on problems in molecular biophysics, and computational and systems biology; and provides training for a new generation of scientists using the latest computational and modeling tools. The Institute is the home and provides oversight of the graduate program in computational biology and molecular biophysics.

Research at the BioMaPS Institute combines molecular-level details and biophysical modeling with statistical and bioinformatics tools to provide a multiscale view of complex biological systems. Current foci of collaborative research at the institute include: transcriptional regulation of gene expression; modeling of biological pathways and interaction networks; proteomics; structure-based drug and vaccine design; and development of computational and statistical methods for the classification of cancer patients. Additional research problems are described on the individual institute faculty webpages.

Students completing the interdisciplinary graduate program in computational biology and molecular biophysics are awarded the Ph.D. degree. Courses and dissertation research are focused on the concepts and techniques of molecular and structural biology; bioinformatics and computational biology; and statistical physics and mathematical modeling. In addition, the program provides the necessary infrastructure (courses and faculty) for students enrolled in the molecular biosciences umbrella program at Rutgers who wish to specialize in computational and structural biology.
