Laurence H. Baker Center

The Laurence H. Baker Center is most closely associated with the BCB Graduate Program at Iowa State. Their mission is to facilitate the bioinformatics work of students and faculty by providing computer support, fostering communications among the students and faculty at ISU and with external laboratories and granting agencies, and providing leadership in bioinformatics activities. Faculty in the Center are engaged in research that either: 1) produces large amounts of biological data or 2) develops computational, graphical, or algorithmic methods to interpret and glean information from large biological data sets. Such data sets stem from molecular, cellular, anatomical, physiological, population, and ecological studies. A number of tools are available through them located here:
