Center for Cancer Computational Biology (CCCB)

Overview of Services


The CCCB has three primary elements.

  • The CCCB sequencing facility offers a wide range of services to assist in the design and execution of next-generation sequencing projects. Utilizing the Illumina (Solexa) sequencing technology, we currently support a number of applications inlcuding ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, whole genome, whole exome, and targeted re-sequencing.


  • The analytical services and support platform aims to provide state-of-the-art assistance in the collection, management, analysis, and interpretation of large-scale data with a focus on data generated using 'omic technologies. In addition, we offer software, services, and training designed to assist investigators in advancing their research.


  • The CCCB research program is focused on development of new methods for improving analysis and interpretation of genomic data through integration of diverse data types with the goal of creating open-source software tools to be made freely-available to the research community.




The mission of the Center for Cancer Computational Biology (CCCB) is to further the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's commitment to advance the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of cancer and related diseases.

We aim to do that by providing broad-based support for the analysis and interpretation of 'omic data and in doing so, further basic, clinical, and translational research and to conduct research that opens new ways of understanding human cancer.
