Jacqueline Rehn recently joined the SAHMRI Bioinformatics Core Team after completing a Masters in Biotechnology (Biomedical) at the University of Adelaide. While supporting the Bioinformatics Core with various projects, her principal role is the analysis of RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data within the Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) collaborative research group. ALL is the most common cancer affecting children and is caused by a variety of genetic alterations. Analysis of RNA-seq data can be used to detect genetic fusions and variants which may be causing or contributing to disease progression. Jacqueline’s research focuses on improving the detection and classification of patients with ALL using high-throughput sequencing technology, in order to identify appropriate treatment options.
