The services of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics have been incorporated into The Center for Biomedical Research Support and the Biodiversity Center in the Department of Integrative Biology. Through the short courses and Summer School, The Center for Biomedical Research Support provides learning opportunities for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty interested in the use of computational approaches to solving biological problems. The research interests of the participating faculty, who are drawn from departments across The University of Texas at Austin, involve a broad range of approaches and focus on experimental evolution, molecular evolution and phylogenetics, systems biology, ecological, evolutionary and functional genomics, and neurogenomics, to name just a few.
Additionally, the large format printing and design services for the UT Sciences community are now offered by the Biodiversity Center.
The CCBB was first established in 2000 at The University of Texas at Austin, under the leadership of founding directors David Hillis and Tandy Warnow. In 2012, Dr. Hans Hofmann assumed the leadership of the Center until 2018, spearheading the College of Natural Sciences' Bioinformatics Initiative.
