About the group

The applied bioinformatics group was founded in 2007 at the University of Queensland and moved to the University of Western Australia in January 2015. Since this time, the group has established itself as a leading bioinformatics group in Australia. Our current research activities include the second generation sequencing of complex genomes and metagenomic populations, genome annotation, diversity analysis, trait association and data visualisation.

The group receives funding from the University of Western Australia, the Australian Research Council, the Grains Research and Development Corporation and several industry partners to undertake applied bioinformatics research in genetics and genomics.

The group is led by Professor David Edwards and consists of researchers with diverse backgrounds. We offer training in applied bioinformatics at all levels and publish widely in the fields of genomics, genetics and bioinformatics. Please contact David Edwards for further information.

We are based at the University of Western Australia's Crawley campus in Perth, Australia.

Publications

We publish extensively in major journals. A current list of publications can be found on Google Scholar
