Ms Irina Kuznetsova is Research Associate at the Systems Biology and Genomics Laboratory at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, The University of Western Australia. She obtained a M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from University of Tampere, Finland at the Computational Biology group, where she worked on estimating the relative pathogenicity of human genetic variants.
Subsequently, she undertook doctoral studies in the Mitochondrial Medicine and Biology Group at the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, University of Western Australia, where she studied cellular metabolic processes involved in the regulation of mitochondrial and nuclear gene expression. During her PhD she continued to develop computational skills, which include; analysis of transcriptomic and proteomic data, developing and optimising analysis workflows specific to the mitochondria research, developing new tools (CirGO, OmicsVolcano) and improving existing data visualisation techniques that advance the interpretation and comprehension of research discoveries.
In her current role as a bioinformatics research associate at the Systems Biology and Genomics Laboratory, she is further expanding computational skill set to analysis of single cell transcriptomic datasets.
