About Us

We provide Bioinformatics expertise in sequencing, proteomics, and metabolomics data analyses. Each member of the Bioinformatics Research Technology Platform (RTP) has unique skills and together we will help add value to the data you obtain from experiments.

Dr Sascha Ott

I am an expert in designing experimental-computational workflows to address specific biomedical questions. I am most familiar with RNA-seq and ATAC-seq (as bulk or single-cell data), but also have experience working with other data types such as DNA-seq, ribosomal profiling, MeDIP-seq, or ChIP-seq data. I have been involved in a range of research projects including comparative genomics of non-coding DNA, research into miscarriages, cancer research, plant biology projects, and others. My research lab's home-page is here.


Richard Stark

I have been working as a Bioinformatician in Life Sciences for two years and before that in industry (Unilever, Oxford Gene Technology , Mars) as a researcher and service provider for more than 10 years. My work has allowed me to become involved in a variety of interesting research projects in toxicology, medical research and assay design. A common theme across these projects has been using bespoke statistical methods and analysis pipelines to extract inferences from genomic, transcriptiomic, metabolomics and diverse other datasets.



Dr Chrystala Constantinidou

I am a microbiologist with an interest in genomics, transcriptional regulation and microbial pathogenesis. I have extensive experience in the application of emerging technologies such as high-throughput sequencing in wide ranging microbiology projects addressing both fundamental biology and clinically relevant questions. Although my background is experimental biology I also have experience working with a variety of genomics data analysis pipelines. My research lab’s home page is here.


Dr Paul Brown

My background is in experimental biology, but my research interest today is in the development of user-friendly sustainable scientific software for data acquisition, analysis and modelling. I have developed a number of web-based bioinformatics tools and can offer bespoke software services. I can also advise on and implement HPC cluster workflows.
