Our Mission

The mission of the Center for Biological Data Science is to build an academic community centered on quantitative and computational discovery science and to promote collaborative and reproducible research and education in basic and applied life sciences across Virginia Commonwealth University.

The center develops and supports critical infrastructure and core capabilities at VCU in bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, and computational systems biology. Center faculty apply data science and informatics principles to research, instructional and other scholarly activities in the life sciences.
