Center for Cutaneous Bioinformatics

The Center for Cutaneous Bioinformatics (CCB) aims to enhance the analysis and translation of experiments that study the genetics and genomics of different skin conditions. CCB researchers are developing novel systems biology approaches and analysis pipeline to decipher the pathology and mechanisms of cutaneous diseases. This research combines in silico discoveries and bench experiments to advance our understanding of genomics in autoimmune skin disorders. Modeling the risk of developing disease subtype and providing functional characterization of disease-associated long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are two of the major projects for CCB.
