Biography

Laurence Wilson is a postdoctoral fellow in the Transformational Bioinformatics team, working under Dr. Denis Bauer. His focus lies in computational genome engineering, machine learning, BigData approaches and Cloud Computing.

He received a PhD in Bioinformatics from the Australian National University and undertook Postdoctoral training at the Institut Curie in Paris, focussing on how chromatin dynamics influence cancer progress and weather this information can be leveraged to inform patient treatment decisions.

Laurence's current research focuses on designing computational tools to assist in genome editing applications, focusing primarily on the CRISPR-Cas9 system.
