As computer researcher with a strong background in molecular biology, Xu practices “bioinformatics.” He uses high-capacity computers to help other researchers analyze huge amounts of data, such as DNA sequences in human and plants. Xu’s lab has developed software programs that assist biological modeling; for example, one of their programs enables scientists to predict how proteins on the cellular level will change, or “fold,” when subjected to certain conditions.
