Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) is one of the founding
research centers at KAUST with an aim to advance life sciences by developing
innovative methods, systems and resources for targeted knowledge discovery from
biological data. Its strategic research focus is on building bioinformatics
tools and resources for OMICS studies adapted for high-performance computing
implementation, development of an infrastructure for computational/mathematical
modeling of microbial systems and development of infrastructure and methods for
rational design of microbial cell factories.
The Center manages a state-of the-art, 15000+ cores computational cluster as
well as three laboratories, the Comparative Genomics and Genetics Laboratory,
The Laboratory for Microbial Bioengineering and the Structural Biology and
Engineering laboratory. More than 80 faculty, researchers, postdoctoral fellows,
graduate students and staff are currently associated with the CBRC. During its
six years of work, more than 325 journal papers were published from the research
at the Center.
