    Welcome to the CCTB

    Biology has become a quantitative science due to many technological advances (e.g. in sequencing or microscopy), where one of the most important challenges lies in the extraction of new insights from large datasets. The mission of the CCTB is the development and application of new approaches for big data analysis, image processing and mathematical modeling of complex biological processes.
