About US

This student-led group works with Life Science researchers at ISU to create and apply computational and bioinformatics solutions to biological problems. The BCBLab showcases the wide range of research projects available at Iowa State in BCB.

Students in the BCB Graduate program can participate in the BCBLab. Participants learn from the exchange of experience, knowledge, and resources with one another while making substantial contributions to on-going research efforts.

Projects range from porting legacy Fortran applications to PHP/MySQL, to structure determination and microarray analysis. Various past projects have been highlighted at our Projects page.

BCBLab is run by the BCBLab Administrator and the Executive Committee.

BCBLab is sponsored by NSF IGERT training grant. We get additional grants and support from Plant Sciences Institute (PSI) and the Department of Genetics, Development, and Cell Biology at ISU.
