Center for Computational Biology

The Center for Computational Biology (CCB) is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to research on genomics, genetics, and DNA sequencing technology. The CCB brings together scientists and engineers from many fields, including computer science, biostatistics, genomics, genetics, molecular biology, physics, and mathematics, all of whom share a common interest in gaining a better understanding of how genes and genomes affect biological functions. It develops and applies technology that uses sequence data to study a wide range of questions, including how genes cause disease, how genes change in response to different conditions within the cell, and how genomes evolve.
