I'm a Research Assistant working within the Platforms and Pipelines team at the Earlham Institute. I routinely perform many types of library construction, including KAPA DNA, TruSeq ChIP-Seq, TruSeq RNA, Stranded RNA, NimbleGen Exome Preparation and PacBio. In support of this work, I regularly utilise robotic platforms, such as the Perkin Elmer Sciclones, Janus and NSG express in high throughput projects. I also run bespoke projects, such as beta tests and protocol optimisations.
Prior to joining EI, I worked at The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, working on Sir Mike Stratton’s Cancer Genome Project. Here, I performed a wide-range of both DNA and RNA extractions from many different tissue types. My work involving DNA extraction from ancient prostate FFPE tissue led to my most recent mention as a co-author on a publication in Nature Genetics.
