I work in bioinformatics.


  • 2001-2006, PhD, MRC-Dunn / MRC-LMB, UK
  • 2000-2001, MRes, The University of York, UK
  • 1997-2000, BSc, The University of York, UK

Research interests

  1. Developing community resources (wiki) for sharing scientific data. Some examples include:
    1. MetaBase / MetaBase in WikiPedia / MetaBase.
    2. PDBWiki / PDBWiki in WikiPedia / PDBWiki.
    3. Bioinformatist.Org
    4. Bioinformatics.Org/Wiki / Bioinformatics.Org in Wikipedia / Bioinformatics.Org.
    5. SEQwiki / SEQwiki in WikiPedia / SEQwiki.

All of these resources have been created under the umbrella of the BiO Community Cluster (BiO.CC) project. You can read about BiO.CC on MetaBase.

See also the BioWiki nature network, and the Nature wiki reviews [1][2].

Non wiki interests

  1. The analysis of protein-protein interaction networks in a phylogenetic context (re:PSIMAP).
  2. The analysis of protein complexes and protein biophysics.
