Using public sources of genomic data to answer essential research questions

On the 6th of June the third Quantitative Genomics student conference will be held at UCL. This one day event is organised by students, and is designed to give early-career researchers in mathematical and statistical genomics the opportunity to network and present their research. The ...

Thoughts about genetic clustering

Part of my job at Repositive is to think about the different kinds of specific queries that can be run on genomic data that are scientifically interesting. For example, calculate the allele frequency at a certain genomic location, count the number of C->T mutations ...
