Project name Applied Bioinformatics
Project description
The applied bioinformatics group was founded in 2007 at The University of Queensland and moved to the University of Western Australia in January 2015. Since this time, the group has established itself as a leading bioinformatics group in Australia. Our current research activities include the second generation sequencing of complex genomes and metagenomic populations, genome annotation, diversity analysis, trait association and data visualisation.

The group receives funding from the University of Western Australia, the Australian Research Council, the Grains Research and Development Corporation and several industry partners to undertake applied bioinformatics research in genetics and genomics.

The group is led by Professor David Edwards and consists of researchers with diverse backgrounds. We offer training in applied bioinformatics at all levels and publish widely in the fields of genomics, genetics and bioinformatics.

Dataset name Blast Formatted Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Data for TAGdb
Dataset description
The TAGdb is an online database enabling researchers to identify paired read sequences that share identity with a submitted query sequence. These tags can be used to design oligonucleotide primers for the PCR amplification of the region in the target genome. This tool is applicable for gene and promoter discovery in a wide range of species and greatly facilitates comparative genomics and molecular marker discovery in orphan crops or those with large and complex genomes.

The collection currently includes Barley, Brassica, Diplotaxis, Hirschfeldia, Lotus, Nicotiana, Pongamia, Rye, Sinapis, Teraselmis and Wheat NGS data.
