Dr Avril Coghlan

Senior Bioinformatician

I am a bioinformatician working on parasitic worm genomes.

I am interested in understanding how the genomes of parasitic worms (nematodes and platyhelminths) evolve; in identifying worm drug targets and predicting potential novel anthelmintic drugs; and in helping lab biologists to develop new tools to study the biology of parasitic worms. I am also interested in statistics and bioinformatics methodology, and I’ve written The Little Books of R (http://little-books-of-r.readthedocs.io/en/latest/) and write a blog on things I learn about bioinformatics, called avrilomics (http://avrilomics.blogspot.co.uk/).
