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).
Why a Bioinformatics degree from University of Delaware?
Whatever your background, life sciences or computational/ mathematical sciences, students, full-time or part-time at the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology will gain core competency for job opportunities in the very rapidly growing field of bioinformatics. Indeed the bioinformatics market is projected to reach $21 billion by year 2026. The opportunities exist in industries ranging from agriculture, pharmaceuticals and health care to data analytics and software industry.
Fostering cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, cross-campus and inter-institutional research in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology synergistic to UD strategic research areas, including Systems Biology, Energy and Environmental Studies, and Translational Medicine.
Providing scientific expertise and core infrastructure support in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology for the Delaware research and education community. Available resources include bioinformatics services, consulting, training, and access to computational infrastructure and software.
