Systems biology and genomics


Research overview
Professor Forrest’s research focuses on using cutting-edge genomic techniques, in particular next generation DNA sequencing and computational approaches (bioinformatics) to understand how cells work at a system level. He has extensive experience in next generation sequencing (NGS) and has published using a variety of platforms (Roche, SOLiD, Illumina and Helicos) and protocols (RNA-seq, CAGE, small RNA, ChIP-seq). The move to Perkins in 2015 is allowing him to translate his basic research on mammalian systems onto clinically relevant questions such as identification of novel cancer biomarkers and drug targets.
