Computational Biology Institutes Links

The BACTER Institute

The BACTER (Bringing Advanced Computational Techniques to Environmental Research) Institute, located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is funded by a 3-year, $3.67 million grant from the Department of Energy's Office of Science as part of the Genomics:GTL program. Lead by Prof. Julie Mitchell BACTER will bring a new paradigm of computational biology research and education to bear on the DOE goals of bioremediation and energy production.

Institute for Multiscale Modeling of Biological Interactions

The Institute in Multiscale Modeling of Biological Interactions (IMMBI) at Johns Hopkins draws on a variety of disciplines in science and engineering to foster studies of biological interactions and to train the next generation of computational biologists. With support through a three-year $2.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Johns Hopkins and two partner institutions, the University of Delaware and Los Alamos National Laboratory, established the institute dedicated to computational biology research and education.
PI is Michael Paulaitis

UC Merced Center for Computational Biology

The Computational Biology (CCB) Institute is a multi-institutional collaboration including the new University of California campus at Merced, Rice University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, as well as individual collaborators at other sites. The CCB fosters a number of research projects that emphasize the role of predictive simulations in guiding biological understanding by funding graduate students and post-doctoral fellows with backgrounds in the mathematical and computational sciences to work on collaborative biology projects.
