The Exelixis Lab

Enabling Research in Evolutionary Biology

Our mission - Enable Research in Evolutionary Biology

We mainly focus on

  • Computational Molecular Phylogenetics
  • Large scale evolutionary biology data analyses
  • Supercomputing
  • Quantifying Biodiversity
  • Next Generation Sequence Data Analysis

Secondary research interests include, but are not limited to

  • Emerging parallel architectures (FPGAs, GPU, Xeon PHI)
  • Discrete algorithms on trees
  • Population Genetics

In the past we have also worked on medical image analysis, tree visualization, load balancing tools.

Our main goal is to design useful and scalable tools for biological knowledge discovery.
