Bioinformatics Program – Baker Institute


The Bioinformatics Program at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute aims to build bioinformatics capacity through collaboration (internal and external), support and training.

The program offers data analysis across a range diverse technology including genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and metagenomics / microbiota, as well as cross-omic integration.


A diverse set of analytical techniques is employed, including statistical analysis, machine learning, network analysis and high-dimensional data visualisation as well as the design of computational algorithms.

This enables the identification of genetic variants, genes and other biomolecular / organismal entities that differ between conditions, enabling researchers to make disease predictions, infer pathogenesis and identify targets for intervention.

Access and contact

Access to the capability is via collaborative research.
