Facility Details

The Computation, Modeling & Bioinformatics Center (CMBC) provides state-of-the-art analytical support to science and engineering faculty across multiple schools and departments. This support includes, but is not limited to: (a) assisting faculty in the development of new computational methods for analyzing large data sets, (b) development of methods for interfacing instrumentation with computational models for data visualization, and (c) assisting research programs in the development of rigorous approaches to modeling highly complex systems that include quantum mechanical, statistical mechanics and other molecular modeling techniques. The technical expertise, scientific knowledge, and research experience of the Director and staff provide the level of support required to address the specific needs of the scientific research community.
This facility is used by a wide variety of NIH- and NSF-funded biomedical research groups in areas ranging from molecular modeling of cell membranes and polynucleotides; the analysis and storage of large amount of genomic data and the processing; and modeling and visualization of imaging data. The services provided by the Center have a direct bearing on research ranging from fundamental understanding of biological processes to the early detection of cancer through the modeling of light-tissue interactions.
