The Bioinformatics & KnetMiner group based at Rothamsted Research in Harpenden provides consultancy, software and analytics services to empower Agri genomics research across the globe. Our team of Bioinformatics data scientists and software engineers can support your plant, pathogen or soil (meta) genomics projects, advise on design and analysis of complex RNAseq experiments, and offer strategies and tools for gene and trait discovery. KnetMiner is our in-house developed platform for gene-trait discovery using knowledge graphs. It helps scientists to organise, mine and understand complex relationships between genes, gene networks and traits.  Try one of the free KnetMiner resources for selected species, or request a demo or training to understand it’s full capabilities.
