The Bioinformatics Group
The bioinformatics team is run by members of the molecular genetics research group at Peninsula Medical School. The aim of the bioinformatics team is to design database systems and novel computational tools to aid genetic epidemiology research.
We are currently working on analysing data from the WTCCC whole-genome association study of Type-2 Diabetes. Through statistical and bioinformatic approaches we hope to identify novel T2D susceptibility genes.
