Welcome to CVR Bioinformatics

Welcome to our web site. CVR Bioinformatics is a group of computer-based researchers embedded in the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR). We work in close alignment with CVR’s genomics team led by Ana Filipe. Together we have the shared mission to support CVR researchers and external collaborators, perform independent research and provide resources to the wider virology community. As a team virus bioinformatics leads in the development of novel bioinformatics/computational biology solutions for the study of viruses and virus-host interactions. Uniquely in the UK, our bioinformaticians are solely dedicated to virology and are experts in a wide range of topics relevant to CVR research priorities. In particular we have expertise in analysing next generation sequencing data, metagenomics, transcriptomics, data integration, molecular evolution and phylogenetics, software engineering and database development. Please get in contact if you’d like to work with us.
