Welcome to the Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB)

The CCIB reflects the cross-departmental approach to biological research already established among Rutgers-Camden faculty. The Center brings together leading research academics from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. Students in the Graduate Program in Computational & Integrative Biology are integrated into the life and activities of the Center and are viewed as an essential element of its success.

 

Undergraduate Programs

The Molecular Option provides a thorough background in the subject areas involved in Computational and Integrative Biology (CIB) Major, with a stronger emphasis on chemistry and biology.

The Systems Option provides a thorough background in the subject areas involved in Computational and Integrative Biology (CIB) Major, with a stronger emphasis on mathematics and computer science.

The Physical Option provides a thorough background in the subject areas involved in Computational and Integrative Biology (CIB) Major, with a stronger emphasis on biophysics.

CCIB Dual Degree

The Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB) is offering students to obtain both a Bachelors degree (BS) and Masters (MS) degrees in CIB within five years.

The dual degree program initiates at the Fall term of your Junior year by contacting the CIB Graduate Program Director. Admission into the program occurs in the Spring Term of your Junior year.

Q-STEP

Q-STEP has been instituted on the Rutgers-Camden campus so as to increase the numbers of successful graduates in the sciences and mathematics and to enhance the level of their quantitative skills. 

Masters Program

The Masters program at CCIB is intended for students from a variety of backgrounds with Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics.

Doctoral Program

The Doctoral program at CCIB is intended for students from a variety of backgrounds with Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics..


How we work

The work of the CCIB emphasizes the development of mathematical models for biological systems, application of the models to data from laboratory and field investigations, the adjustment of the model based on its fit to and predictive value for experimental results, and the subsequent modification of the experimental design based on the predictions of the model. We hope you will explore our site to learn more about the Center, its research, and its graduate program.
