Mr Muhamad Fachrul

BSc(Bioinformatics), Indonesia International Institute for Life Sciences (i3L)

Fachrul completed his undergraduate studies at Indonesia International Institute for Life Sciences (i3L) in 2018, and was one of the first three graduates in the country to receive a BSc in Bioinformatics. As an undergrad, he developed an attachment towards transcriptomics through research placements at Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS), La Trobe University, Melbourne, and Earlham Institute, Norwich. He returned to GIS as part of Foo Lab for his bachelor’s thesis, with a project focusing on profiling A-to-I RNA editing in cardiomyocytes from the point of view of differentiation and disease states.

Fachrul is currently a PhD student in Inouye Lab (co-supervised by Agus Salim), and his current research interests lie in the biostatistical approaches in analysing the human microbiome.
