About us

We're a bioinformatics group at the University of Queensland, Australia. Our research aims to develop, investigate and apply bioinformatics methodologies to understand and resolve a range of open problems in genomics, molecular and systems biology. Recent applications involve protein sorting, nuclear protein organisation, mechanisms of transcriptional regulation, sequence and structure determinants of protein function and modification, and protein engineering. See here for a list of publications from our group.


If you have any questions or feedback, we'd love to hear them. Please ensure that you provide a valid email address if you would like us to respond to any questions/queries. If you do provde an email address, you will be automatically cc'd on to the email.
