Computational Biology and Bioinformatics

The Computational Biology and Bioinformatics core facility provides research opportunities and support for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches to solving biological problems. Our goal is to lower as much as possible the threshold to enter the -omics area of the life sciences.  To achieve this goal we have established a much-in-demand Bioinformatics Consulting Group, developed a high-performance local compute and storage architecture (the Biomedical Research Computing Facility), and implemented a cutting-edge training program for the biological sciences community.

Bioinformatics Consulting Group

To achieve this goal, we have established a much-in-demand Bioinformatics Consulting Group, introduced a cutting-edge training program for graduate students and postdocs, and developed many popular networking opportunities in addition to high-performance computing and administrative support.

Biomedical Research Computing Facility

Additionally, the Biomedical Research Computing Facility (BRCF) provides researchers with local compute and storage capabilities (termed Compute PODs) suitable for research computing workflows not addressed by the Texas Advanced Computing Center's (TACC) supercomputers.
