I am interested in the content, function and evolution of herpesvirus genomes. Over the years, my group has studied many herpesviruses that infect humans or other animals. The understanding gained is fundamental to research on this important family of large DNA viruses.
My group's main expertise is in high throughput DNA sequencing, and we work closely with the bioinformatics team in analysing the data. Our chief collaborators are Gavin Wilkinson (Cardiff University), Thomas Schulz (Hanover Medical School) and Colin Geddes (Glasgow Western Infirmary). We are also carrying out collaborative projects on other herpesviruses, parvoviruses and parainfluenza viruses, the latter in association with Rick Randall (University of St Andrews).
