Latest News


In 2018 the Bahlo lab:

  1. Published a survey of scRNAseq analysis methods for clustering (Freytag et al, F1000Research, https://f1000research.com/articles/7-1297/v2)
  2. Published identity-by-descent and selection signal detection method for haploid organisms with multiclonal isolates (e.g. Plasmodium) (Henden et al, PLOS Genetics, 2018 & https://github.com/bahlolab/isoRelate)
  3. Published detection method for repeat expansions using WES and WGS data (Tankard et al, AJHG & https://github.com/bahlolab/exSTRa)
  4. Started a collaboration with Dr Anna Coussens (WEHI), with Jacob Munro on TB WGS

Research Activities

Bahlo Lab works on bioinformatic analysis of high throughput sequencing data of human and non-human organisms, making use of familial and population level information. The emphasis is on statistical techniques that exploit high throughput data. We are interested in selection signatures and building classifiers in Malaria studies.
