Computational Bioscience and |
The Computational Bioscience and Engineering Laboratory (CBEL) is a research and development organization that provides engineering and computer science expertise to support biomedical research activities at the National Institutes of Health.
CBEL applies image processing and medical imaging technologies, high-performance parallel
computing, high-speed networking, signal processing, state-of-the-art optical and electronic
devices, bioinformatics, database technology, mathematical and statistical techniques, and
modern hardware and software engineering principles to help solve biomedical research
problems at NIH.
CBEL presently has projects in cancer genome anatomy data visualization
and storage, cDNA microarray data analysis and visualization, computational
radiotherapy, human genetic linkage analysis, laser capture tissue
microdissection and chromosome microdissection instrumentation systems
design, medical image archive system, positron emission tomography
and electron paramagnetic resonance imaging, protein structure determination
using x-ray crystallography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy,
telemedicine with high resolution imaging, three-dimension echocardiography
visualization, virus structure determination using electron microscopy,
and computationally intensive biomedical applications.
