The NIAID OCICB Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch (BCBB) provides leadership in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology. Serving the NIAID research community and inter-institute collaborators, the program provides expertise in the areas of biostatistics, microarray analysis, sequence analysis, structural biology, and phylogenetics. BCBB’s primary objectives are to:
The Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology (OCICB) manages technologies supporting NIAID biomedical research programs. The Office provides a spectrum of management, technologies development, applications/software engineering, bioinformatics support, and professional development.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. For more than 50 years, NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world.
