Current research interests

Genome Technology group leader

  • Overseeing development of sequencing and genotyping services at the James Hutton Institute.
  • Coordinating high-throughput parallel gene expression technologies, including:
    • processing and design of custom Agilent microarrays
    • implementation of analysis software and liaison with BioSS (experimental design and statistical analysis).
  • Developing and applying Second Generation Sequencing (2GS) technologies for:
    • SNP marker discovery and application in barley and soft fruit
    • candidate gene identification.
  • Collaborative projects:

Research areas

  • High-throughput anchoring of physical & genetic maps in cereal species (TriticeaeGenome).
  • Designing and utilising new Agilent 60k barley, potato and soft fruit microarrays.
  • Developing multiplex 2GS-based genotyping assays.
