Biology is increasingly data-driven – current technological advances allow massive amounts of genomics and other biological data to be generated at a rapid pace and inexpensively. Progress in data-driven life sciences is impossible without developing appropriate computational and statistical tools for data analysis – in fact, the development of such tools have become a bottleneck for progress.
Realizing the full potential of genomic revolution requires ongoing research efforts by interdisciplinary teams which can bring together understanding of molecular biology, genomics, algorithms, programming, statistical computation, machine learning, stochastic processes, and other mathematical techniques that underlie biological design principles. CCB at IIIT-Delhi brings together expertise in these fields to answer questions in biology and medicine using computational and modeling techniques.
The Mission of the CCB@IIITD is to conduct outstanding research at the interface of biological sciences and computer science to bridge the gap between diverse biological streams, starting from biological netweorks to molecular biology, to computational fields including algorithm development, high performance computing etc. Through these activities:
