Erich J. Baker, Ph.D.

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

Dr. Baker joined the computer science faculty in 2002. He is currently an Associate Professor with interests in

 LIM Systems

 Graph Algorithms

 Translational Genomics


I joined the Baylor faculty as an assistant professor in Bioinformatics in August of 2002. Prior to this academic appointment I served as a post-doctoral research fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratories in the Genome Analysis and System Modeling Group and served as an instructor in the UT-ORNL Genome Science and Technology program.

At Baylor I have been privileged to interact with many very dedicated students in our Bachelor of Science in Informatics degree program. In addition to participating in a top-tier undergraduate bioinformatics program I continue to engage undergraduate and graduate students in my research agenda. This includes areas of biological information management systems, distributed databases, application of graph algorithms to biological processes and translational genomics and systems biology.
