Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Computational Biology Core Services

The Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Computational Biology Core (BBCC) serves to train and support project investigators and their teams across Louisiana. It works to enable Louisiana Biomedical Research Network project PIs and their teams to employ Louisiana cyberinfrastructure (especially high performance computing), and to provide bioinformatics services, training, and educational support.

Training & Support

The core provides one on one training. If you have a question or would like to talk about your training needs, you would like more information about services provided by the core, or you would like to talk to someone in the core about how someone can assist you, please use Cores Contact link:

Cores Contact


The core conducts workshops during the year, for the latest conference and workshops see: LBRN Conference on Bioinformatics and the LBRN Workshops. Surveys are conducted prior to these workshops and during the year to best determine what topics to present and speakers to host.

Core Bucks

The BBC Core provides opportunities for researchers to acquire “Core Bucks” in order to support the informatics analysis of genomic data. Core Bucks requests from member institutions should be initiated through the BBC Core representative for your campus. Please see the Core Bucks Flyer (link to PDF of attached flyer) for more details.

Educational Lecture Series

The BBC Core provides access to introductory lecture series on Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Computational Biology topics which have been lecture captured. These series can be utilized for informal learning or as a basis for a topical course offered for credit at your home institution.

Two sets of lecture series are now available:

Additional lecture series are in the process of creation and will be added to the Lecture Series Site as they are delivered.
