About Us


Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch (BCBB)

The NIAID OCICB Bioinformatics and Computational Biosciences Branch (BCBB) provides leadership in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology. Serving the NIAID research community and inter-institute collaborators, the program provides expertise in the areas of biostatistics, microarray analysis, sequence analysis, structural biology, and phylogenetics. BCBB’s primary objectives are to:

  • Become partners in the research process by applying bioinformatics solutions designed to generate new data or new hypotheses

  • Utilize scientific and technological expertise for long term planning and preparedness through direct consultation with NIAID researchers

  • Participate in the advancement of bioinformatics and computational biology by providing an infrastructure that includes high performance computing, development of scientific software, and licensing of scientific software


Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology (OCICB)

The Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology (OCICB) manages technologies supporting NIAID biomedical research programs. The Office provides a spectrum of management, technologies development, applications/software engineering, bioinformatics support, and professional development.


National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) conducts and supports basic and applied research to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases. For more than 50 years, NIAID research has led to new therapies, vaccines, diagnostic tests, and other technologies that have improved the health of millions of people in the United States and around the world.
