Service overview

The Life Sciences Computation Centre (LSCC) is an expert team supporting life sciences research across all Victorian research institutions. With nodes at Melbourne, Monash and La Trobe Universities, the LSCC offers expertise and capacity-building activites to support researchers in transforming large amounts of data into meaningful results in the areas of High Throughput Genomics, Computational Bio-imaging and Molecular Dynamics.

Additional info

The LSCC is structured around its three key themes:

High Throughput Genomics. Theme Leaders: Professor Justin Zobel and A/Prof Andrew Lonie. Prof. Zobel is Professor of Computational Bioinformatics at the University of Melbourne, with a key research interest in computational methods for genomics. A/Prof Lonie is the Head of the LSCC and is Academic Coordinator of Melbourne University’s MSc(Bioinformatics) program. A/Prof Lonie has research interests in Genomics, Statistical Genetics, and Knowledge engineering.

Computational Imaging. Theme Leader: Professor Gary Egan. Prof. Egan is Director of Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) at Monash University, with research interests in functional neuroimaging, cognitive neuroscience, high resolution MR cortical imaging and functional neuroimaging analysis methods.

Molecular Modelling & Dynamics. Theme Leader: Associate Professor Brian Smith is the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science Principle Research Fellow at La Trobe University, with research interests in computational chemistry and modelling of molecular interactions.
