Oncoviral integration in cervical never-responder

We are detecting sites of HPV18 oncovirus integration into the human genome, and investigating the mechanism it facilitated cervical cancer progression

About Us

With a growing need for data management, analysis and research computing support – in particular due to the unprecedented growth of sequencing data – researchers and clinicians will benefit from community-driven, reusable approaches to process, analyse and aggregate large-scale sequencing data. Led by Associate Professor Oliver Hofmann, the Genomics Platform Group is developing, testing, and applying accredited bioinformatics workflows to patient data and large scale research projects, evaluating new technologies at a rapid pace.
