Roslin comparative genomics
Our group is one of the key teams active in the analysis of the chicken and sheep genomes. We are also involved in the evolutionary analysis of other avian species and seasonal timing in vertebrates using comparative genomics and bioinformatics.
We have particular expertise in using bioinformatics / Biomathematics for analysis of high-throughput Next Generation Sequencing data, data mining, phylogenomics, genome comparisons and gene annotation. It includes sequence alignment, gene expression analysis (RNASeq and miRNASeq), genetic variation and gene function (SNP and CNV), DNA methylation (MeDIP-seq) and genome annotation.
