Dr Nadia Davidson
Dr Nadia Davidson has worked with in the Oshlack group at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute since 2011.
She was originally trained in Physics and Software Engineering and completed her PhD in 2011 from the University of Melbourne on the topic of Experimental Particle Physics at the Large Hadron Collider.
- Travelling Fellowship, Harold Mitchell Foundation, 2013
- International Short Visit Fellowship, Swiss National Science Foundation, 2013
- AMATA Conference Early Career Researcher Poster Prize, 2013
- Marie Curie Early Stage Research Fellowship, 2008/2009
Dr Nadia Davidson's research interests include methodology development and analysis of Next generation RNA sequencing data. She has been involved in a diverse set of projects that include studying sex development in birds, to identifying genomic rearrangements in cancer.
A common theme to her work is de novo transcriptome assembly.
- Improving differential expression analyses for non-model organisms
- Detecting fusion gene in Cancer using RNA-Seq
