Bioinformatics

The Bioinformatics research group focuses on statistical bioinformatics and computational biology. Led by Doctor Alicia Oshlack, the team works on genetic analysis methods for high-throughput sequencing and microarrays and is involved in many collaborative projects. 

The research focuses on analysis RNA sequence data and epigentics to detect disease causing variants in the human genome.
