Overview: Bioinformaticsand Integrative Genomics
Research interests in the bioinformatics and
integrative genomics cluster (BIGC) involve large-scale data analyses
incorporating a wide range of 'omics' technologies such as RNA-seq, single cell
RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, WGS and WGBS. BIGC covers all aspects of projects using
'omics'- from study design, to data generation and analysis. The BIGC aims to
equip postdocs with the skills they need to successfully incorporate NGS
technologies into their research projects. Strong emphasis is placed on
collaboration and team science and will foster career development by providing
postdocs with guidance on how to foster successful interdisciplinary
