Current research interests

  • Genome assembly, SNP discovery, marker/microarray design, genome annotation.
  • Development of visualization and analysis tools for sequence and genetic data.
  • Database and information management systems for Institute research projects.
  • Automated data pipelines for producing good quality, contaminant-free DNA sequences, contig assemblies and sequence annotation.

Past research

As Bioinformatics Specialist at the Institute I create databases of plant genetic data and create interactive websites to deliver that data to a world-wide audience. Much of my research involves the design and implementation of new methods of visualizing data. The online databases use custom designed mySQL databases and Perl/CGI scripts for the back-end programming and generation of images, and use a combination of CSS and JavaScript for the website design. I also develop strategies for comparing large datasets of sequences (both within and between species), and write software for automating and streamlining the processing of large quantities of sequence data.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
