THE CCBL GROUP
The CCBL is a self-sustaining collaborative research space under the Center for Applied Plant Sciences (CAPS) focused on bioinformatic and computational biology research and collaboration.
HOW DO WE WORK:
The CCBL provides a collaborative environment for synergy in Computational Biology:
A workspace for computational biologists across OSU to share and better utilize available resources
A laboratory to facilitate development of research and analysis tools in bioinformatics research
A collaboration hub to seed grants for interdisciplinary pilot projects
The concept is inspired by the causal and dynamic environment of technology start-ups. In this regard, CCBL aims at catapulting Ohio State’s computational biology expertise to a national level through fostering peer connectedness, deliberate creative problem solving, research acceleration and idea incubation and exploration.
To achieve this, CCBL fosters a transdisciplinary approach to education and research by providing a research platform for faculty, postdocs, students, and anyone else with the required skill set and desire to contribute. The result a synergistic environment for transdisciplinary Computational Biology research..........read more
