Dr Jawahar Swaminathan

Senior Scientific Manager (DECIPHER Project Manager)


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

I am the Project Manager for the DECIPHER Database and Consortium developed and based at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. As Project Manager for this challenging and medically critical resource, I oversee the day-to-day management of the website, take part in outreach activities and am involved in the planning, implementation and delivery of new developments in DECIPHER.

Prior to joining the WTSI, I worked at the European Bioinformatics Institute as the Head of Annotation for the Protein Data Bank in Europe (PDBe) where I led a team of annotation specialists taking care of structures deposited to the PDB. I was involved in outreach activities for the PDBe and have travelled extensively speaking at various scientific conferences and meetings and conducted teaching courses. As a researcher at the University of Bath, I have worked on a MRC funded programme grant on proteins involved in inflammatory processes and have determined the 3-dimensional structures of many proteins involved in allergy and asthma. I have also developed BioBar, a browser bioinformatics search add-on for Firefox.

I retain a keen interest in structural biology and protein structure modelling.
