The Phenomics and Bioinformatics Research Centre (PBRC) aims to enable fundamental advances in biological science through the development and application of mathematical, statistical and computational techniques.
Our research is applicable to a variety of important problems, including improving the resilience of food crops to environmental stresses.
We also host a node of the Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics (ACPFG).
Sequencing error correction without a reference genome
The Phenomics and Bioinformatics Research Centre has recently published an article in the journal BMC Bioinformatics which has attracted wide interest. ‘Sequencing error correction without a reference genome’, was authored by PBRC member Julie Sleep and collaborators at the Centre for Cancer Biology and Australian Centre for Plant Functional Genomics.
Plant root transport
Kylie Foster, PhD Student and Professor Stan Miklavcic, both of the Phenomics and Bioinformatics Research Centre, have recently had 2 papers accepted in the prestigious Journal of Theoretical Biology.
