Personal profile



James holds a PhD in Cell Biology from the University of Edinburgh where he studied the function of Ubiquitination of Transcription factors in the regulation of Gene Transcription using the immune response of Arabidopsis as a model system. James has since gained extensive experience as a lab manager at the Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences and the Roslin Institute. Since taking the role of the Genomics Platform manager, James has been producing high-quality single-cell and single-nuclei RNA-seq libraries using both 10X Genomics and Parse Biosciences based technologies, often from unusual non-model species, acquiring extensive experience in working with difficult samples.
