Edmund is a bioinformatician within the genome informatics team at OICR, where he provides technical knowledge and expertise in genomic analysis. His main focus is developing pipelines and data wrangling for ICGC-ARGO (International Cancer Genome Consortium – Accelerating Research in Genomic Oncology).
Dr. Simpson develops algorithms and software for the analysis of high-throughput sequencing data. He is interested in de novo assembly, the detection of sequence variation in individuals, cancers and populations and the application of compressed data structures to large analysis problems. Dr. Simpson developed the ABYSS and SGA software packages.
Gabriela is a MSc student in computer sciences at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Dr. Fanny Chevalier at the Dynamic Graphics Project, and Dr. Anna Goldenberg’s lab at SickKids Hospital. Her research is grounded in understanding human factors in the design of data- and data-visualization systems in healthcare. She has designed analytics interfaces in both industry and academic settings, and develops tooling in the form of R packages to increase understanding and ease of application of findings through interactive visualizations of the relationships between models and their clinical contexts.
Bioinformatician and data analyst in the Bader lab applying pathway and data analysis to varied data types. Developed Enrichment Map App for Cytoscape, an app to visually translate functional enrichment results from popular enrichment tools like GSEA to networks. Further developed the Enrichment Map Pipeline including development of additional Apps to help summarize and analyze resulting Enrichment Maps, including PostAnalysis, WordCloud, and AutoAnnotate App.
Michael Hoffman creates predictive computational models to understand interactions between genome, epigenome, and phenotype in human cancers. He implemented the genome annotation method Segway, which simplifies interpretation of large multivariate genomic datasets, and was a linchpin of the NIH ENCODE Project analysis. He was named a CIHR New Investigator and has received several awards for his academic work, including the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, and the Ontario Early Researcher Award.
Robin is a microbiologist with experience in bioinformatics, curation and outreach. Dr. Haw has a PhD in genetics and was a senior curator at Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) and managing curator at Science Signaling’s Signal Transduction Knowledge Environment (STKE). He has been responsible for coordinating outreach, Reactome presentations and training at workshops and conferences.
