How variations in genome sequence affect phenotype in C. elegans


Postdoctoral Fellow: Wellcome/CRC Institute, U.K.
Postdoctoral Fellow: Cold Spring Harbor
Ph.D.:  University of London, U.K.
B.Sc. - University of Cambridge, U.K.

Fields of Interest:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics


Research Interests:

We want to understand how variations in genome sequence affect phenotype in health and disease. To do this, we use the nematode worm as a simple model system in which we can perturb the function of any gene in any genetic background and learn how to predict the outcome.
