Computational Science

Intersecting computing science with the natural sciences

Whether it is the integration of computing and biology, novel computational tools and methods to predict and mitigate rapid changes occurring in the earth’s life-support systems, or the representations, analysis, and visualization of digitized geographic information, Microsoft Research is committed to providing computational support to unravel the mysteries of science.
