Next Generation Sequencing
The Bioinformatics Group includes research faculty and members affilicated with the Institute of Bioinformatics at the University of Georgia. The group develops computational tools for analyzing next generation sequencing data.
The Bioinformatics group works together with the researchers in other departments across the University of Georgia. The group develops mathematical and probabilistic models for understanding the fundamental processes in evolutionary biology, system biology, ecology, etc. The computational tools developed by the group are useful for undertanding the evolution of species, Cellular metabolism, protein stucture and functionality, genome annotation, etc. In addition to basic biology, the tools are also useful for understanding cancer and other genetic disorders.
