Bioinformatics Program

Comprehensive study of gene regulatory network, protein signaling pathway and metabolic function is now recognized as one of the most important topic in biology, medicine and biotechnology. As a leading research university in Taiwan, the Bioinformatics Program at National Tsing Hua University seeks to integrate cross-disciplinary approaches to educate the aspiring scientists and engineers to understand how the biological systems work.

The program consists of affiliated faculty from 7 participating departments and graduate institutes – Life Science, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering and Environmental Sciences, Mathematics, Information Systems and Applications, Bioinformatics and Structural Biology, Statistics.

Using knowledge adapted from biochemistry and molecular biology, The Bioinformatics Program at National Tsing Hua University teaches the bioinformatican trainee how to ask important question and to propose hypotheses to explain a target biological system's behavior.

Importantly, these hypotheses can be used to model the system dynamics mathematically. Simulation models are used to predict how parameter changes in the environment affect the system and to be iteratively tested for their validity.

New approaches are also being developed to improve our ability to make high-throughput measurements, and to create, refine, and retest the models until the predicted behavior accurately reflects the phenotype seen.
