Australian Medical Bioinformatics Resource (Amber)

Grant number: 404025 | Funding period: 2010 - 2011



This proposal is to build a new national medical bioinformatics resource - the Australian Medical Bioinformatics Resource (AMBeR) - and to enhance the national capacity in this important area. We aim to bring together Australia's unique resources for genetic epidemiology and genomics with high level expertise in bioinformatics and statistical science, conduct advanced methodological research, develop new research capacity and competitiveness in cutting-edge techniques, bring them to bear on important medical research problems, train young Australians in bioinformatics and advanced biostatistics, and transfer this expertise to the medical research community.
