Welcome to the Computational Biology site of the University of Cape Town 

The University of Cape Town (UCT) Computational Biology (CBIO) Group is the centre of Bioinformatics activities at the university.  It was originally set up as a Node of the National Bioinformatics Network, which aimed to develop capacity in bioinformatics in South Africa, and to perform world-class bioinformatics research. The CBIO Group is located within the Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine (IDM) in the Health Science Faculty, and integrates researchers interested in bioinformatics at the university. The group performs bioinformatics research and provides training and services in the discipline.
