Rigorous statistical models ensure the accurate description and interpretation of biological systems, and therefore a significant focus area in the QBI is statistical biology. Research in this area is developing new approaches in statistical genomics (e.g. through new algorithms to align genomes, map sequencing reads, and represent phylogenetic relationships), novel methods in high-dimensional data analysis, and development of statistical theory.
