Advanced Research Assistant
This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.
Advanced Research Assistant in the Billker Group looking at the Molecular and Cellular Genetics of Plasmodium Bergehi.
My role is primarily involved in constructing and testing new molecular tools to allow us to further probe P.bergehi biology. Initially I built a range of tagging vectors to extend the range and utilise the modular nature of our targeting vector pipeline. Since then I have produced and adapted of a range of Overexpression, FACS sortable, and Conditional systems to utilise our recombineering approach. I am also involved in the multiplexed, high throughput, growth phenotyping screen of Knock out genes produced in our PlasmoGEM pipeline.
Joined the Billker Group (Malaria Genetics) as an Advanced Research Assistant to work on developing Molecular tools for P.berghei genomics.
Joined The Stemple Group (Zebrafish development and Genomics) as an Advanced Research Assistant to help work on new technologies for the Whole Genome Knock Out Resource.
Joined the Everitt, Audio vestibular Group, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute as an Advanced Research Assistant to investigate Age Related Hearing Loss.
Joined MRCgeneservice, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, as a research assistant to run the core capillary sequencing service.
Joined the MRC Human Genome Mapping Centre, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, as a Finisher on the Fugu Genome Project.
Joined the Kullmann Group, Institute of Neurology, UCL as a Research Assistant on a project looking at Epilepy and Episodic Ataxia.
Graduated Bsc(Hons) in Biochemistry and Genetics, The University of Nottingham.
