Dr. Ganapathiraju’s primary area of research is in Systems Biology, specifically on protein-protein interaction prediction at the system level.  The outcomes of this research will subsequently be applied to translational bioinformatics. A second core area is in Sequence Analysis, for pattern mining in whole-genome and whole-proteome sequences, with application of suffix array data structures for preprocessing the genome sequences.

For all of these biomedical domains, Dr. Ganapathiraju develops novel algorithms with research basis in machine learning, information integration and network analysis and other areas of computer science.
