Professor of Applied Mathematics

Overview

Charles (Chip) Lawrence has been involved in computational biology research since the early-1980s. At a time when research in the field was focused on algorithmic approaches, he was a pioneer in developing novel statistical approaches to biological sequence analysis. In fact, he was one of the first to recognize that the inherent statistical nature of genomic processes and the immense data resulting from genomic sequencing projects could only be fully analyzed by using statistical algorithms.
