The Monash Bioinformatics Platform (MBP) is one of many Research Technology Platforms to support the needs of the Monash research community.

The focus areas of the Bioinformatics platform are:

  • Research: We do collaborative research with high quality publication outcome along with Bioinformatics support to funding applications.
  • Training & Outreach:
    • We provide skill development hands-on training and seminars on wide range of technical topics relevant to Monash researchers.
    • We run weekly drop-in Bioinformatics help sessions.
    • We are actively developing and supporting coding community on the campus.
  • Bio Tools: Bioinformatics methods, tools and application development.
  • Compute: Facilitating access to high performance compute and data storage infrastructure at Monash.


We have Bioinformatics and data analysis capabilities in the genomics and proteomics areas including but not limited to:

  • Advice on Omics experimental design
  • Bulk and single cell RNA-seq
  • ChIP-seq / ATAC-seq
  • Variant analysis
  • Microbiome profiling
  • Methylation analysis
  • Genotyping by Sequencing
  • Whole genome assembly and annotation
  • High throughput profiling of the proteome
  • Studying protein structures
  • Custom analysis pipeline development
