Quantitative Cell Biology and Communities (QCBC)
Group Chairs: David Beck and Joseph Hellerstein
Rapid progress in the quality and quantity of laboratory data on cellular processes enable the development of quantitative models of cells and cell communities that can usher in a new era of materials, personal medicine, environmental remediation and more. We refer to this emerging area as Quantitative Cell Biology and Communities (QCBC). The QCBC special interest group at the eScience Institute focuses on data management, processing pipelines, and modeling, and machine learning methodologies for understanding the biology of cells, viruses, and their communities.
