Biometry & Bioinformatics
Contact: Dr Olena Kravchuk
Biometry research involves development and application of methods for the design of experiments and the statistical analysis of data. Our biometry research is focused on the design and data analysis for research in agriculture, food and wine.
- Dr Chris Brien – models and designs for plant phenomics
- Dr Beverley Gogel – models and designs for multi-environment multi-trait field trials; ASREML development
- Dr Olena Kravchuk – non-parametric inference; sensometrics
- Dr Julian Taylor – statistical genetics; models and designs for multi-environment multi-trait field trials; ASREML development

Bioinformatics can include computational biology, data analysis, mathematical modelling, informatics, software development and systems biology. Our research touches on most of these areas, with a particular emphasis on the study of gene expression, gene regulation, genome structure, next generation sequencing and comparative genomics in crop species such as wheat and barley.
