Hashem Koohy has joined the group, moving on from a postdoc with Tim Hubbard at Sanger Institute and two (!) PhD studies (one in pure maths and one in bioinformatics). Hashem will be co-supervised by Peter Fraser and other PIs from the Nuclear Dynamics ISP. Hashem’s main focus will be on the Systems Biology of Ageing Programme that is carried out jointly by our ISP, but he also has plans for some other exciting projects on the side. Welcome!

Manuela Zanda joins the group as a visiting postdoc, co-supervised by Vincent Plagnol at UCL. Manuela has a background in population genetics and machine learning. While with us, she will be supplementing these tools with functional genomics approaches to gain insight into disease mechanisms. Welcome!
We have finished the manuscript on establishing a population genomics resource in medaka fish (one of Mikhail’s projects while in Ewan Birney’s group in collaboration with Jochen Wittbrodt, Kiyoshi Naruse and Felix Loosli labs in Germany and Japan). We have made the pre-print available in arXiv and the same time as submitting it to a peer-reviewed journal. This means that you can read it and “peer-review” it yourself before seeing the final version in print. Special thanks go to Ian Dunham for overseeing the final stage of the project – and fingers crossed for the peer-review!
