Computational biologist Manolis Kellis on understanding life

Sep 18, 2006

Manolis Kellis is a member of Technology Review’s newest TR35 “class.” The MIT computational biologist studied pure computer science as a student, and as he recently explained to us, he believes his current work still fits that description. In fact, his goal is still to understand machines–living ones. You can read more about Kellis’s work in our profile of him or in his essay, “Finding Evolution’s Signatures.”

Kellis will join other members of the 2006 TR35 at this year’s Emerging Technologies Conference at MIT, where the group will be honored.
