Computer Science Graduates Finding Success at the Graduate and Doctoral Level

Computer Science Graduates Finding Success at the Graduate and Doctoral Level

Brad Greening admits that he never envisioned himself as a doctoral student, even while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in computer science at Rutgers–Camden.  But after a challenging research experience and a push in the right direction from a faculty mentor, Greening became convinced to change his career trajectory. “I had no desire to pursue an […]

Researchers Unravel Genetic Web to Help Target Diseases

Like a complex wiring system, the genetic network within a cell is an interconnected web of strands communicating to ensure the proper function of an organism. At Rutgers–Camden, computational biologists are slowly untangling the web to understand how all the pieces fit together. The work is a step toward understanding the regulation of gene expression, […]

Researchers Calculate Cell Chemical Reaction Rates Using Gene Expression

A pair of Rutgers–Camden researchers is taking an innovative approach to measuring how quickly cells react with chemicals. The new process could be a valuable resource in metabolic engineering and biochemical production. The key lies within a cell’s genes. “Genes produce the proteins that make chemical reactions happen. They tell you a lot about what’s […]

Using computer modeling to analyze DNA evidence

Using computer modeling to analyze DNA evidence

For a research project that sounds like it could have been taken from a CSI script, Desmond Lun, an associate professor of computer science at Rutgers–Camden, is working with a team of scientists from Boston University and MIT to use signal-processing techniques to determine a suspect’s likelihood of contributing to a DNA sample. Lun was […]
