TOPO-MD

TOPO-MD is a web interface for a data management, analysis and visualisation tool designed for genomics.

It describes the relationships between gene expressions in a patient in the form of a network graph, and can be used to diagnose illnesses by comparing to known expression patterns. The RSG was contacted by researchers in Maths & Bioinformatics to develop TOPO-MD as a ‘proof-of-concept’ to demonstrate the use of their technique in an application for funding from the University’s Z21 Innovation Fund.
