The Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (C2B2) supports active research programs in areas such as computational biophysics and structural biology, the modeling of regulatory, signaling and metabolic networks, pattern recognition, machine learning, and functional genomics. Center faculty have appointments in a broad range of departments including Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Biomedical Informatics, Biological Sciences, Computer Science, Center for Computational Learning Systems, Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics and Electrical Engineering.
C2B2's shared space is located in Columbia's new Audubon III building at Columbia University Medical Center, but faculty members are based on both the Medical Center and Morningside Campuses of Columbia University. C2B2 sponsors a seminar program. C2B2 also provides access to a range of software tools.
A major focus is graduate education. C2B2 sponsors a Ph.D. program as a special track within the Integrated PhD program in Cellular, Molecular and Biomedical Studies and participates actively in other Ph.D. programs in collaboration with various departments within the university.
