The main topic of this section consists in the applications of Computer Science to Biology. In more details, this school section focusses on Computational Biology and on Computational Systems Biology, a new discipline which puts together several disciplines: Computer Science, Mathematics and Biology. The section benefits form a master of first level in Bioinformatics, which is hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science 'Roberto Magari', which has active collaborations with industries and has also been supported by the Fondazione Monte dei Paschi. The Section of Bioinformatics has developed collaborations with major centres of industrial research in biotechnologies, located in the area of Siena, e.g. Novartis V&D, Sienabiotech, Bayer, etc. A recent agreement between the University of Siena and Novartis V&D provides for PhD scholarships financed by Novartis V&D.
