Professor Terry Speed is a world leader in bioinformatics and is regarded as one of the strongest statisticians Australia has ever produced. His work has enabled scientists to assess which genes are being turned on in a cell and to what extent. This has helped to identify areas of the human genome that contribute to cancer, genes that are vital for embryonic development and to pinpoint malaria proteins responsible for initiating infection in human red blood cells.
