Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research

An introduction to network analysis methods

Getting started with bioinformatic software

Friday 5 July 2019

Dr Melissa Davis is a computational biologist and Joint Head of the Bioinformatics Division at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Her background is in genetics and computational cell biology with expertise in the analysis of genome-scale molecular networks and knowledge-based modelling. Her research group is highly multidisciplinary, and focuses on computational research in cancer progression and plasticity.

Melissa received her PhD at UQ and continued as a postdoc at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience. In 2014, she was awarded a National Breast Cancer Foundation Career Development Fellowship, and took up a position as Senior Research Fellow in Computational Systems Biology at the University of Melbourne in the Systems Biology Laboratory, before moving to the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research in 2016

This lecture will introduce software and online tools useful in the construction and analysis of biological networks.
