Welcome to the CCB

The Centre for Chromosome Biology (CCB) at NUI Galway in Ireland hosts an interactive network of researchers investigating topics linked to the biology of genomes.

We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying chromosome replication, segregation, repair, evolution, chromatin regulation and transcription. These processes are fundamental to our growing understanding of genetics and epigenetics, and have important implications for cancer and disease.

The Centre currently comprises 12 core groups and 4 associate member groups with over 60 researchers and support staff. We have a range of technologies available for studying chromosome biology at the molecular, cellular and organismal level.

In 2014 the CCB moved to the purpose-built Bioscience Building on the North campus of NUI Galway.
