Three ECE Faculty Members Named Bioinformatics Fellows

Three ECE faculty members have received two-year fellowships to collaborate with researchers at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI): Peter Athanas, Amy Bell, and Mark Jones.

Athanas will work on computing machinery and networks issues. Bell will explore signal and image processing research as well as engineering education. Jones will collaborate on databases and software for modeling biochemical systems and flu virus simulations.

Located in Virginia Tech's Corporate Research Center, the VBI was established by the state as a flagship bioinformatics research institute blending biological research with computer science. VBI's multidisciplinary research programs have leveraged a contract base exceeding $25 million. The VBI operates two supercomputers, including a Sun Microsystems SunFire 15000 and an IBM Linux cluster, as well as a storage area network that provides more than 13 terabytes of combined disk and tape storage.
