Computational Analysis Plays Key Role in Developing Treatments for Infectious Diseases

Prof. Desmond Lun discusses how computational biology is used to fight infectious diseases. In the fight against infectious diseases, researchers often look for new methods to improve treatments and find cures. Computational biology is one field that is playing an increasingly significant role in that fight. “There is a constant quest to find new therapeutics or improve on existing ones and computational analysis is becoming more important to […] Read more ...
