In the midst of the Ebola epidemic, modelers tried to predict its spread, with some success. Now they’re reflecting on the lessons learned.
Computation offers a window into a disease often described as a black box
How bioinformatics tools are bringing insight to the environmental side of the health equation
Researchers are expanding the types of data that can be used to predict infectious disease spread; developing novel ways to analyze that data; and trying to create systems that can help address public health problems today
Using computational models, researchers are gaining traction toward understanding what makes a stem cell a stem cell; how gene expression drives stem cell differentiation; why studying stem cell heterogeneity is important; and, ultimately, how stem cells control their fate.

Advances in computational modeling of viral epidemics and viruses themselves produce some speedy results
There is growing recognition that epigenetics may be just as important as genetics in human health and disease.
They've gone from hype to backlash. Now it's time for reality: How microarrays are being used to benefit healthcare
