Computational biology & radiobiology research is conducted by our
group under grants from DOE, NSF, NIH and NASA. Main topics are: 1)
large-scale DNA structure and damage by ionizing radiation; 2)
estimating risk of radiation carciogenesis. Techniques involve
mathematics, modeling and programming. Data is obtained by colleagues
at various labs worldwide or is in the literature. We have a small
theory group (e.g. a postdoc, a grad student and several undergrad
