Current Research

Pavel Pevzner’s research focuses on combinatorial algorithms in computational molecular biology. In order to introduce biologists to computational foundations of modern bioinformatics, he developed three programs: an introductory bioinformatics course for all biology students; a research course in bioinformatics in which undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty collaborate on the same research project; and a residential summer program for gifted high school students. Pevzner co-authored the textbook Bioinformatics Algorithms: an Active Learning Approachand an online Bioinformaticsspecialization on Coursera.
