The Clinical Bioinformatics group focuses on basic computational research underlying peptide therapeutic development, and on clinically relevant genetic variation. Peptide development focuses on platelet, cancer, infection and food areas, while genetic studies include cardiovascular and autism genetics, with a particular focus on genetic combination effects.
We are physically located in the Complex and Adaptive Systems Laboratory, currently in Belfield Office Park, which has help drive collaborations with computer scientists (CLIQUE network analysis cluster; machine learning) and physicists (molecular modelling). We are a multidisciplinary group focussed on computational analysis and modelling of biological and clinical processes.
