Using outbred genetic variation to understand basic biology
DNA sequence remains at the heart of molecular biology and bioinformatics. The Birney Associate Faculty Research Group at the Sanger Institute focuses on developing sequence algorithms and using genetic variation to explore elements of basic biology within and between species
The group is led by Professor Ewan Birney, Associate Faculty at the Wellcome Sanger Institute and joint Director of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).
Within the group are Tomas Fitzgerald (staff scientist) and Adrien Leger (postdoctoral fellow), from EMBL-EBI.
