Our research focuses on the development and application of computational methods to improve the understanding of biological systems.
The Figure illustrates how our work is divided into three interlinked areas:
3. Specific Applications: where we apply our methods and other techniques to specific biological systems usually through collaboration with experimentalists. See the publications dropdown menu and the Data Analysis Group pages for recent papers.
We have a longstanding BBSRC funded collaboration with Dr Gordon Simpson on RNA processing. This has included pioneering work on the analysis of RNA expression and polyadenylation in plants by Direct RNA Sequencing, much of which is encapsulated in our polyAdb database.
The most prominent outreach activity from our group over the last few years has been the GenomeScroller exhibit.
Our essay on The UK Academic System aims to help people to understand how scientific careers develop, what the terms Reader and Professor mean in the UK and how scientists fund and publish their work.
