SFSU Center for Computing for Life Sciences

The Center for Computing in Life Sciences (CCLS) is part of a University-wide strategic thrust towards interdisciplinary research and education. It addresses the emerging trend of integration of life sciences and computational and mathematical sciences. It involves faculty, researchers, and students from the SFSU departments of Biology, Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. The broad research program of the center emphasizes investigations in topics varying from Bioinformatics and Computational Drug Discovery to complex data visualization and development of new paradigms for data modeling, user interfaces and web-engineering in contexts involving life sciences. The CCLS provides an environment for faculty to cooperate, for students to work on multidisciplinary projects including those involving culmination degrees and for collaboration with industrial and academic partners. The center also hosts a number of external advisors and collaborators.
