This interface theme links all the activites of the Simons Centre across scales. We do not have computer science represented directly on our campus. Rather, we use the Simons Centre as a platform to reach out to theoretical computer scientists through our Visitors program, thematic Retreats and Colloquia, and joint students and post-doctoral researchers. The engagement between biology and computer science is nascent globally. We hope to play a critical role in nurturing this interface.
