CCBB Home

The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB) provides research opportunities and support for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches to solving biological problems. The vision of the CCBB is to provide an exciting intellectual environment, an excellent bioinformatics consulting group, an advanced computing infrastructure, and training opportunities in computational approaches to the fundamental questions of modern biology. 

The research interests of the participating faculty, who are drawn from departments across The University of Texas at Austin, involve a broad range of approaches and focus on experimental evolution, molecular evolution and phylogenetics, systems biology, ecological, evolutionary and functional genomics, and neurogenomics, to name just a few. Prospective students interested in research opportunities in computational biology and bioinformatics should contact the appropriate faculty members directly.

Among the resources, maintained by the CCBB are several high performance computing (HPC) clusters, extensive and secure data storage systems, web servers, and a wide array of software packages. The CCBB supports a Bioinformatics Consulting Group that provides support to UT faculty and students whose projects involve large-scale data sets and complex computational analyses. Training in computational and bioinformatics approaches to biological problems is another part of our mission. We offer and sponsor a variety of training courses and workshops. For more details, see our Training page. Finally, the CCBB sponsors seminars of interest to the computational biology community, including an Annual Symposium in Big Data in Biology.
