Overview

If you have an interest in bioinformatics and cancer research, please contact us to find out more. Dr Chatterjee has played a lead role in establishing RRBS, being the first researcher to establish DMAP package sequencing-based DNA methylation analysis technique in Australasia, including the development of a pipeline for robust analysis of DNA methylation patterns in eukaryotic genomes. The pipeline is currently one of the fastest available for large-scale methylation analysis, and Dr Chatterjee has invested much time and effort into streamlining the RRBS technique. Further, Chatterjee Lab members developed the scan_tcga tool suite to retrieve and analyse TCGA data by specific patient subgroup.

Our groups work closely with local bioinformaticians for developing new analysis pipelines and streamlining existing strategies for epigenetic analysis. The Chatterjee Lab will continue to develop tools and statistical methods for accurate analysis of epigenomic datasets from next generation sequencing technologies (NGS).
