Center for Computational Genetics and Genomics


CCGG's mission is to bring together scientists who work on genetic and evolutionary theory and who employ computational approaches. CCGG scientists study a wide range of topics and tend to share three common research interests: evolutionary theory, genetic and genomic data, and research approaches involving considerable computer programming.


CCGG plays a leading role in the doctoral program in bioinformatics. With strengths in computational genomics, computational chemistry, and the data sciences, this interdisciplinary program offers students unique opportunities to be taught and trained by world-renowned researchers at Temple University.
