Cameron joined QCIF in June 2021 as a Bioinformatician based at USC to support the university’s researchers and contribute to QCIF’s involvement in national software platforms. 

Cameron will work closely with Australian researchers, researching and provisioning analytical resources of use to biomedical and related communities. 

In 2020, Cameron created the interactive CrustyBase portal for crustacean gene expression data as part of his PhD in Bioinformatics Software at USC. He also began working with USC researchers as a freelancer, developing analytical biotechnology solutions and providing support with bioinformatics analysis. 

Cameron will also assist the QCIF Bioinformatics team with its advisory service related to bioinformatics, biostatistics and biodata for researchers and HDR students from QCIF Member institutions, including USC. 

Cameron will also support the development of national software platforms, such as the Australian BioCommons’ Galaxy and Apollo services, which bring bioinformatics services to Australian researchers. 

His skills, which include genomics analysis, bioinformatics tooling, programming and network computing, are also being put to good use helping staff and students at the USC Hacky Hour every Wednesday. 

Researchers requiring support with software development may contact Cameron directly: Those seeking bioinformatics advice are best to submit an enquiry via our Members Advice Request form to get access to the whole team.
