Cancer is a major burden to the health system causing 1 in 8 deaths worldwide. Cancer is driven by germline and somatic DNA changes. Our group uses bioinformatic approaches to analyse large datasets to characterise a variety of cancers. The overall aim of this project is to use different data types to determine how the tumours arose and identify new therapeutic opportunities in cancer. This is a computational project which will integrate whole genome, RNAseq, methylation and protein data to build an integrative view of cancer. The project will suit a student with experience in computer programming and the student will work closely with postdoctoral researchers in the lab.
