The Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

The Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology encompasses the Coordinated Laboratory for Computational Genomics and is briefly described below. The Coordinated Laboratory for Computational Genomics (CLCG) was founded in 1996, and has been engaged in a variety of research topics in bioinformatics and computational biology. These include: gene and mutation discovery, expression analysis and functional genomics, genetic and physical mapping, genome-scale analyses and information management. The Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB) was established in 2002 to expand involvement of research in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology on the University of Iowa campus, and to coalesce efforts of current investigators. The CLCG is a charter member lab of the CBCB. Thomas Casavant, Ph.D. (Roy J. Carver, Jr. Chair in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology), is the director of the CBCB. Terry Braun, Ph.D., is the director of the CLCG in the College of Engineering. Todd Scheetz, Ph.D., is the director of Bioinformatics for the Institute for Vision Research (IVR) in the College of Medicine.
