About the speaker

Simon Rayner is group leader of the Bioinformatics group at the Department of Medical Genetics, Oslo University Hospital and Professor II at the University of Oslo. He has been working in bioinformatics in both industry and academia. His research focuses on the development of methods for mining and visualizing big data. He have a particular interest in genome evolution at the molecular level and the subsequent impact at the functional level; to this end, he has currently worked with Whole Genome Sequence, Whole Exome Sequence, RNA Seq and smallRNA NGS datasets. However, whereas “traditional” genetic methods are focusing on the collective effect of point mutations within coding regions and their role in disease, he is examining the role of non-coding RNAs in disease and how mutations in these regions can be associated with disease.
