Dr Roshan Sood
As a bioinformatician my role is to process and build pipelines for the large datasets we generate in exploring pre-cancer and ageing.
In our group we use ultra-deep sequencing, amongst other approaches, our team studies how oncogenic mutations alter the behaviour of stem cells during aging and the earliest stages of cancer development in the skin and oesophagus.
Mainly I focus on the processing, analysis and visualisation of Next-generation genomic sequencing of DNA and RNA-seq using the latest analysis tools and pipelines. Coding mainly in Python and R.
