-Omics method development

Our ability to perform large-scale studies of a number of the key molecular players such as DNA, RNA, protein and cellular metabolites has greatly advanced our ability to understand complex biological systems. Analysis of combinations of of DNA, RNA and protein data, ie multi-omics data, provide the basis of large-scale data driven biology and medicine. Recent rapid progress in data-driven science has been enabled through a combination of high-throughput large-scale laboratory methods and development of sophisticated bioinformatics analyses. In this project we aim to improve upon existing and develop new technology solutions which enable large-scale multi-omics analyses using next generation DNA sequencing (NGS).
