Top-MD illustrates the relationships between clusters of gene expression in a patient in the form of a navigable 3D network graph.  It has the potential to aid in disease diagnosis through comparison to known expression patterns. The application manages scaling of the analysis on cloud resources and data management, as well as providing powerful, intuitive, visualisation.

The Research Software Group developed a “Minimum Viable Product” on behalf of researchers in Maths and Bioinformatics to showcase their analytical technique, funded by the University’s Z21 Innovation Fund.
