Feri Torabi

Research Assistant

I am passionate about the nexus between genomics and immunology. 

I am working in the wet-lab side of Prof. Nicole Soranzo’s group to assist with generating single-cell RNA sequencing libraries at a population level using a novel high-throughput pipeline comprising 10X Genomics platforms and semi-automated liquid handlers.

The mission of our team is to leverage the power of single-cell genomic technologies at scale to map cell type-specific expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) in human blood cells. 

Prior to joining the Sanger, I undertook a research placement at the Babraham Institute (Dr Stefan Schoenfelder’s group) where I explored the epigenetic variation in human induced pluripotent stem cells derived from different donors.
