Dr. Ritchie is a laboratory head in the Molecular Medicine Division at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (email@example.com).
Microarray and sequencing technologies provide a high resolution and cost-effective way of surveying complex biological problems, such as the variations in the genome in health and disease, or analysing the entire set of genes expressed in a particular cell type or tissue.
Our research focuses on the development of analysis methods tailored to new applications of genomic technology in biomedical research.
Our novel algorithms for analysing high-throughput data are implemented in open-source software that is freely available to researchers worldwide via the Bioconductor project.
We also collaborate with other research groups at the institute to analyse genomic data that provides new insights into the genetic regulation of blood development.
- Statistical methods for RNA-seq data analysis.
- Analysis methods for Illumina genotyping array data.
- Measuring allele-specific expression using SNP arrays and sequencing.
- Analysis of high-throughput sequencing data from shRNA screens.
- Exploring gene regulation in blood cell production using genomic technologies.
