Research Summary

1) Developing Statistical/Probabilistics and Informatics tools/algorithms for studying various Computational Biology tasks, especially: (a) (Phospho-Proteomics) modelling signal transduction pathways on the basis of MS/MSdata, (b) infering gene networks from microarray data, (c) determining protein 3-D structure via hierarchical/syntactic models.
2) The underpinning frameowrk for studying the above problems in computational biology, has been motivated by, and has a great deal of similarity to, our research in high-level Computer Vision tasks -- especially ""object recognition"".

Past or Present Projects Available:

* Dynamic Programming and Monte carlo computational algorithms for computer vision tasks
* Hierarchical/syntactic models for speech recognition
Potential future:
* Analysis of MS/MS data
* Signal Transductuctions pathways modelling
* Analysis of Microarrays data amd gene networks"
