Systems Genomics‎ > ‎Research‎ > ‎


Research in computational biology at the University of Melbourne is diverse and it can be difficult to find out the who, what and where of it all. This page is an effort (not comprehensive) to catalog the groups doing bioinformatics, systems biology and biostatistics at Melbourne and its affiliated institutes. It's scope includes those who have substantial independent research programs and dry lab space.
