This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.
I am a Molecular and Cellular Biologist with strong interest in Genomics and Biotechnology. I am currently working on malaria genome variation analysis. My focus is on the development of tools that facilitate high-throughput sequencing of clinical samples and genome analysis. My goal is to translate current high-throughput genomic technologies into basic tools for healthcare applications.
