With the advent of data-intensive technologies in modern biology, computational and bioinformatic approaches are quickly becoming essential parts of every biologist’s toolkit. It is therefore of great importance to provide graduate students and postdocs with the necessary skills and compute infrastructure that allow them to design, analyze, and interpret complex large-scale experiments.

Summer School for Big Data in Biology

The Summer School offers intensive four-day workshops on diverse topics for analysis of large-scale DNA, RNA, and protein datasets.

CCBB Short Courses

Each long semester, the CCBB offers a variety of short courses in diverse topics for learning computational approaches to biological problems.


In conjunction with the Center for Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (CCBB) we provide ample community events to support researchers.

Freshmen Research Initiative Stream in Big Data in Biology

This FRI Stream in bioinformatics seeks to enrich and engage undergraduate students in new and advanced computational technologies for research in the life sciences.
