The Biological Networks Lab, led by Preetam Ghosh, Ph.D., primarily focuses on areas of modeling and simulation of complex networks with a focus on biological networks and distributed computing.

Major research areas

  • Stochastic modeling, analysis and simulation of complex biological systems

  • Reverse engineering algorithms for gene regulatory networks (GRN), their analysis and visualization techniques

  • Designing robust wireless sensor networks using the concept of attractor sites from gene regulatory networks

  • Cyber-infrastructure development for data preprocessing and reverse-engineering tools in gene regulatory networks

  • Economic theory-based pricing, resource management and job scheduling issues in distributed systems with an emphasis on mobile grid computing

  • Architecture design, time-slot scheduling and performance analysis of optical burst switched (OBS) core transport network and wireless sensor networks
