UC San Diego’s Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CCBB) is a collaborative center that provides investigators with bioinformatics expertise to analyze large molecular datasets.

We place special emphasis in the areas of genomics, transcriptomics, systems biology and translational medicine. Our services include data analysis, biological interpretation, grant writing and training. The center’s goals are to provide exceptional fee-for-service computational analysis and algorithm development, foster long-term collaborations with the UCSD research community, educate biomedical investigators on analysis tools and techniques, and connect bioinformaticians on campus and promote exchange of expertise.

Our affiliation with UC San Diego’s School of Medicine gives us unique access to collaborations with investigators at one of the top-ranked public research universities in the nation. UC San Diego was also named 14th best research university in the world by the Centre for Science and Technology Studies of Leiden University’s 2014 list that measured scientific impact of universities worldwide.

Upcoming Events

  1. Aug 7

    UC Davis Genome Center – Proteomics Short Course

    Aug 7 to Jul 11

    UC Davis Campus

    Participants will be exposed to fundamental technology platforms and current methodologies in the field of mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Lectures will be presented by the proteomics core staff as well as leading proteomics experts including scientists from UC Davis, UCSF, Stanford, Bruker, Thermo Scientific and the Buck institute. This is an intensive, practical course that is meant to give the participant enough background to allow them to take the course material and build upon and apply it to their own individual projects.

  2. Aug 9

    UC Davis Genome Center – RNA-Seq Library Preparation and Introduction to Data Analysis

    Aug 9 to Aug 11

    UC Davis Campus

    This workshop provides comprehensive hands-on training in the preparation of high quality RNA-Seq libraries for the Illumina platform. Participants will generate two types of RNA-seq libraries, suitable for bacterial and eukaryotic samples. RNA samples will be provided. Lectures will cover the entire workflow including sample QC/QA, the basic principles of the Illumina technologies, and considerations for experimental design meeting current publication standards.  Approximately 6 hours will be spent on data analysis.

  3. Aug 21

    UC Davis Genome Center – Variant Analysis Workshop 2017

    Aug 21 to Aug 25

    UC Davis Campus

    Participants will explore experimental design, cost estimation, data generation, and processing of genomic data generated on the Illumina sequencing platform to discover and analyze variants. Topics will include mapping data to a genome, variant discovery pipelines, SNP annotation, effect prediction, structural variants, copy number variants, Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS), and Cancer datasets. This workshop will include a rich collection of lectures and hands-on sessions, covering both theory and tools associated with command-line variant analysis.
