Renesh Bedre, Ph.D.
Bioinformatics data scientist
Appointments and education
Dr. Renesh Bedre is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Texas A&M AgriLife Research. He received his Ph.D. from Louisiana State University, where he studied and applied genomics and bioinformatics approaches to understand the genetics of model and non-model plants associated with diseases and abiotic stresses.
At Texas A&M AgriLife Research, he continued his work on high-throughput genomics analysis and developed new computational methods to understand the complex genetic traits, gene networks, pathways, and basal molecular mechanisms for developing next-generation crops.
In his research, he primarily employs bioinformatics, statistical, and machine learning methods to exploit the large-scale sequencing datasets and interpret meaningful biological information.
Besides, he developed scalable software/tools, automated analysis pipeline, statistical models, and integrated databases for effective analysis and visualization of massive omics datasets.
From his research output, Dr. Bedre bridges the gap between high-throughput plant genetics data and actionable biological insights for experimental biologists.
My research goal is to analyze high-throughput genetics data and develop new computational methods to understand the molecular mechanisms for crop improvement to increase yield and stress resistance. I accomplish these goals by:
- Apply bioinformatics, statistical, and machine learning methods on big high-throughput omics datasets to exploit and interpret meaningful biological information
- Develop scalable software/tool, automated analysis pipeline, statistical models, and integrated databases for effective analysis and visualization of big high-throughput omics datasets
- Work closely with biologists and multi-disciplinary collaborators to help to quickly understand the biological data
- Bioinformatics, genetics, genomics, and transcriptomics
- Statistical modeling and machine learning
- Standalone software programs, web servers, and databases development
- Development of new computational methodologies and automated analysis pipelines for big data
- High-performance computing (HPC)
- Python, R/Bioconductor, Perl, PostgreSQL, Linux, HPC, CyVerse, Docker
