I am the project leader of the Ensembl outreach team. Ensembl is a genomics resource that provides high quality and up-to-date annotation for chordate genomes. A joint EMBL-EBI and Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute project, we work closely with other groups on campus such as the 1000 genomes project.
My PhD and post-doc were in wet-lab research (protein folding and biochemical study of protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions). I made the leap into genomics and bioinformatics when I began with the Ensembl project in 2006. I currently teach wet-lab biologists worldwide how to use our resources, and am responsible for user support like videos, helpdesk, etc.
