WELCOME TO THE CENTER FOR BIOINFORMATICS AND COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY

Bioinformatics and computational biology is an emerging field where biological and computational disciplines converge. Harnessing information from the newly founded Data Science Institute (DSI), the Center for Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (CBCB) is an interdisciplinary, cross-campus and inter-institutional initiative for the Delaware research and education community. It is built on the Bioinformatics Core at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI) and the bioinformatics infrastructure of the Protein Information Resource (PIR).
