Bioinformatics

We provide support to large sequence analysis and functional genomics projects. We work with researchers in running analysis and providing training as well as getting involved in grant applications and publication writing. Please contact us for any query bioinformatics@st-andrews.ac.uk

We are currently working in the following research lines:

  • genome-wide association studies (GWAS)
  • de novo assembly
  • resequencing
  • transcriptomics
  • annotation
  • differential gene expression
  • biomedical computation tools
