On December 1st, 2015, the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) became the Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech. VBI was created 15 years ago, at a time when the acquisition and analysis of genomics sequences was the new frontier of biology. Today, the new frontier has shifted toward understanding networks of interacting entities from molecules to human populations. The new name reflects this change of scientific focus. A more detailed description of the new vision for the institute is available in the press-release issued by Virginia Tech.
This rebranding effort calls for changes in the design of web sites, urls, and templates that we will integrate in the next few weeks.
