The Collaboratorium is open! Come work on bioinformatics surrounded by like-minded people and near the bioinformatics consultants. Interested? Contact the Collaboratorium coordinator Benni Goetz.
















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 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. If you would like to receive announcements about these events, please send a request to add your email address to our list serve.




giftThe 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.

Given advances in sequencing technology, imaging, and remote sensing, we are faced with many opportunities for “Big Data Biology” in genomics, evolution, neuroscience, environmental science, etc. Yet at the same time challenges remain to be overcome if we want to gain insight and knowledge from vast amounts of information.

Join us as we work for our vision to become reality! As much of our research is at the leading edge of science, opportunities in Big Data Biology are simply impossible without your support for seed grants, professorships, and student/postdoctoral fellowships. This allows us to sustain activities not supported by University funds or grant monies.
