Bioinformatics enhances the Institute's capability in next-generation sequencing and systems biology approaches to basic science and clinical research investigating human and animal reproduction and development. Bioinformatics strategies to design and analyse transcriptome, deep-sequencing, genome and proteome data sets are a powerful approach to generating fundamental knowledge on systems and processes in biology and disease.
Dr Jimmy Breen leads the Bioinformatics Facility and works with RRI Research Leaders to:
- Devise and address novel fundamental biology and clinical questions using large data sets
- Advise on design and analysis of bioinformatics experiments and dataset development
- Devise strategies for deep analysis of complex data from unique experimental models and cohorts
- Assist in the supervision of postgraduate research students
