[The BRG dissolved in August, 2019, due to Juan B. Gutierrez's move to the University of Texas at San Antonio.]
The Biomathematics Research Group (BRG) at UGA explores mathematical and computational models at multiple scales (from genes to ecology). Our current direction of research includes: (i) integration of multiple omic technologies (transcriptomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics, etc) capturing the dynamics of host-pathogen interactions into mathematical, computational, and statistical models, (ii) systems biology in multiple contexts (e.g. fungal synchronization, kinetics of biochemical reaction networks, etc), and (iii) multi-scale epidemiology. The BRG has built a continuous computational pipeline to integrate multi-omic data, within-host dynamics (i.e. pathogen vs. immune system), vector dispersal, and human movement.
We devote a substantial portion of our resources to harmonization of heterogeneous data, and interoperability of distributed data repositories and computational facilities.
The BRG has expertise in mathematical modeling using a wide array of techniques, data management of very large and heterogeneous biological data sets, software development from micro-controllers to super-computers, and hardware design. The long-term research goal of the BRG is to build a computational facility capable of quantifying biological processes across multiple scales.
