Greetings and welcome to the Bioinformatics Group at Macquarie University, Sydney.
The group was established in 2004 by Prof. Shoba Ranganathan originally under the auspices of the Macquarie University Biotechnology Research Institute (MUBRI) and with support from the Division of Environmental and Life Sciences. We are currently in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences, Macquarie University. We are a collegial and energetic group of researchers dedicated to make breakthrough discoveries in biological and biomedical sciences by applying genetic, genomic and computational approaches to address and solve the problems faced by the researchers in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Biomedical Sciences, while advancing cutting-edge computational biology research, at the highest levels of excellence.
