The Genomic Informatic group, led by Dr Tapper, specialises in identifying novel germline and somatic variants which influence the risk of developing disease and clinical outcomes and how this knowledge can be translated into improved diagnosis, risk prediction and personalised treatment. The group uses a wide range of bioinformatic and statistical techniques to analyse large-scale genetic datasets including next generation sequencing (NGS), genome-wide association studies (GWAS), polygenic risk scores (PRS), Mendelian randomisation, network analysis, data integration and machine learning.
