Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute
This program will bring together three groups of researchers – statisticians, mathematicians and theoretical ecologists – to study and develop the interactions among the different approaches to ecological modeling.
The Bioinformatics program will be devoted to statistical and mathematical challenges arising in the analysis of genomic and related data with the goal of addressing relevant biological questions.
SAMSI annually conducts a national Education and Outreach Program for undergraduate and graduate students interested in statistics and applied mathematics and their application in the disciplinary sciences. During the 2014-15 academic year, students have various opportunities to participate.
SAMSI is a partnership of Duke University, North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the National Institute of Statistical Sciences, in collaboration with the William R. Kenan, Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science.
SAMSI is also a partner in VI-MSS, an initiative among two U.S. institutes and five institutes in India to foster research exchanges between the two countries.
