Bioinformatics & Cellular Genomics

We focus on the challenges of analysing and interpreting large-scale biological data. Bringing together expertise in bioinformatics, statistics and machine learning, we develop new methods and software and collaborate closely with a wide range of colleagues on studies motivated by specific biologically-focused questions.

Human Genomics & Evolution

We study the ways in which natural selection and evolution have shaped humans, in order to understand how our species' past defines our present.
