Operating on a collaborative, fee-for-service basis, the Center offers research and analytical services to add bioinformatics expertise to an investigators' own knowledge of his or her system to accelerate discovery. In support of our research and analytical service programs, the CCCB is composed of a diverse mix of individuals with skills across the scientific/computational spectrum including biologists, software engineers, bioinformaticians, and systems administrators. Drawing from this varied expertise and infrastructure, the CCCB will offer limited support for more general scientific computing needs.
