UC San Diego’s Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CCBB) provides investigators with core bioinformatics expertise to manage and analyze large molecular datasets, especially from next-generation and RNA sequencing. Our aim is to assist investigators to understand how to make good use of computational tools and analysis methods currently available for solving hypothesis-driven problems in molecular biology. We place special emphasis in the areas of genomics, systems biology and personalized medicine. We also provide expertise in statistical analysis and training where applicable.
The CCBB opened in March 2014 with generous support from the Dean’s Office, Clinical and Translational Institute and several key faculty members at UC San Diego. Our staff works closely with bioinformatics-oriented research groups at UC San Diego and neighboring institutions in the development of new algorithms and software tools. We interact with members of the faculty Bioinformatics Steering Committee led by Trey Ideker, PhD, as well as others in the Health Sciences and Computer Science and Engineering departments.
