COMPUTATIONAL AND ANALYTICAL SCIENCES
We bring together experts in a wide range of analytical instruments and technologies (digital microscopy, chemical analysis, next generation sequencing and metabolomics) with computational science teams (statistics, bioinformatics, ecoinformatics) and theoretical biologists.
The research we undertake is often interdisciplinary and creates (or validates) new analytical approaches, new analysis methods, new software and new resources for direct application to Rothamsted’s science portfolios and more widely to research in agricultural systems.
Our facilities and expertise contribute to all three Science Portfolios, including all of the Institute Strategic Programme Grants and National Capabilities. We provide creative thinking expertise and resources to ensure that experiments are planned, samples are analysed with state-of-the art instruments and the resulting data are managed, analysed and interpreted using the best available methods
