A 2006 Nobel prize was awarded for the discovery that short RNA sequences have an important role in gene regulation. Finding these short RNA is difficult and time consuming. The Sainsbury Lab at John Innes played a crucial role in this discovery. This project will involve developing new techniques adapted from other fields to a wide range of problems arising from short RNA analysis.

This project involves a collaboration between the Bioinformatics group at the Sainsbury Lab, John Innes Centre, the Bioinformatics lab in CMP and the data mining group in CMP. See the resources section for more details and the paper section for a working document on this work.
