Matthew J Waller, BSc | Principal Web Developer

Waller, Matt

I have a background in sequencing and analysing DNA sequences for histocompatibility research and developing tools for displaying DNA & protein sequence alignments. I joined the Wellcome Sanger Institute in 2008 and have supported various research groups, including Variation Informatics (Genotyping) and the WTCCC website. I've re-written the Merops codebase and helped roll out new features. I'm part of a team responsible for the infrastructure that maintains over 200 websites hosted by the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
