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 11 groups with over 90 researchers and support staff. We have a range of technologies available for studying chromosome biology at the molecular, cellular and organismal level.

CCB has moved to a new location

The CCB has moved to a new purpose- built research institute, the Bioscience Building, located on the North campus adjacent to Corrib Village.
