Recently Awarded NSF Bioinformatics Grants | GenomeWeb

• Duke University will receive $7.2 million over the next five years from the US National Science Foundation for computational geometry for structural biology and bioinformatics.

The project will address the problems researchers face when they attempt to apply geometry to biology.

“Life at its most detailed level depends on the geometric shape of molecules. Nevertheless, geometric methods are relatively uncommon in computational biology, primarily because of difficult and unsolved issues in applying geometric computing to biology,” the award abstract said.
