- Davies Group Research Group
MRC Programme Leader
I obtained my PhD in 2003 from the European Bioinformatics Institute, The Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton Cambridge and from the Department of Genetics, Cambridge University. Afterwards I returned to Oxford to work with Prof. Chris Ponting on most of the major large-scale genome projects of the last decade. My interest in synteny breaks from those projects led to an interest in copy number variation, and in turn to the role of genetic variation in disease.
I am strongly collaborative with many European and International partnerships, especially through the Genetics of Cognitive Dysfunction (Gencodys) Consortium and through the IMI StemBANCC consortium, where I lead the Data Interpretation package. If you think we could do something fun together, drop me an email.
