CBCB Bioinformatics Core

Overview of Services

The CBCB Bioinformatics Core builds upon the infrastructure of the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (DBI) and the Protein Information Resource (PIR). As the administrative home of the Delaware INBRE Bioinformatics Core, we support life science research at UD, as well as our partner institutions throughout the state.


We operate under both collaborative and fee-for-service models, and are happy to work with investigators to find a solution that fits their needs and budget. Contact the Core (help@bioinformatics.udel.edu) for assistance planning your research or analyzing your current data

Leadership and Organization

The Bioinformatics Core is operated by the University of Delaware's Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB).  The Core is led by Dr. Shawn Polson with an experienced team of scientists and BioIT staff possessing a diverse range of scientific and technical expertise providing bioinformatics support through the Core.
