Biography

Dr Mitchell's research involves using computational analysis of 'omics data to identify key components of biological systems. Analyses focus on network inference and topology, and involves data from a diverse array of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. Having a strong background in biology and extensive experience with computational analysis, Dr. Mitchell firmly believes in tight partnerships between biologists and computationalists.
