I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Whisstock Lab, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Monash University. Previously I worked in the Lithgow Lab when they were at the University of Melbourne; this group has since moved and is now one of the labs in the Host-Pathogen Molecular Biology Unit 'supergroup' at Monash University. I did my PhD under the supervision of Paul Gooley, doing NMR spectroscopy of proteins for structure determination.
I was an advisor and coordinator for the 2010 Monash iGEM team.
- I keep a (sometimes neglected) personal blog about science, bioinformatics and the web.
- I tweet under @pansapiens. It's mostly unprofessional.

Some links to useful OWW (and other) resources
- Open writing projects/Beginning Python for Bioinformatics ... a great resource in the making.
- University of Chicago:NMR Software Guide ... it's a bit like "NMRPipe: the missing manual".
- NMRWiki and NMR Q&A Forum ... a growing NMR knowledge base and a "Stack Overflow"-style Q&A community.
- North East Structural Genomics Consortium (NESG) NMR wiki ... for sharing experimental protocols as well as training in structural biology and biomolecular NMR.
- MajorGroove .. a "Stack Overflow"-style Q&A community for biologists, with a bias toward researchers using biomolecular crystallography.
- BioStar .. "Stack Overflow"-style community for bioinformatics, computational genomics and systems biology.
- E._coli_genotypes .. a really useful list of genotypes for E. coli strains in common use in many labs.
- User:Andrew Perry/Web2.0 For Scientists -- "Emerging Tools for Scientific Collaboration Online". Some rough notes for a talk I may give one day.
- User:Andrew_Perry/Other_Bioscience_Wikis -- a list of other bioscience wikis and some commentary.
- User:Andrew_Perry/Lesser_Known_Methods_in_Bacterial_Protein_Expression -- every man and his dog expresses their proteins in bacteria using poly-histidine, GST, Nus or MBP tags. Here are a few lesser known techniques that have been published.
- User:Andrew_Perry/Protocols -- I'm starting to compile my own versions of some molecular biology protocols on OpenWetWare.
