Brazma team

Led by Dr Alvis Brazma, the Functional Genomics Team focuses on providing bioinformatics services and conducting research in gene expression and high-throughput sequencing applications to functional genomics. The team participates in software development related to biomedical informatics and systems microscopy, and is responsible for the Gene Expression Atlas, which is being developed to encompass proteomics and metabolomics data. Together with the Sarkans and Parkinson teams, the Functional Genomics team works on the ArrayExpress Archive of Functional Genomics Data and the BioSamples Database. Students in the team focus on data analysis and developing new methods and algorithms, integration of data across multiple platforms and types of data. The team is a major contributor to EMBL-EBI's training in transcriptomics and the use of EMBL-EBI tools.
