Dr. Thomas Down

Principal Scientist

I am a polyglot programmer who has worked in many different areas of computation biology, both research and infrastructure. Within the company I am looking at better ways to view and understand large volumes of genomic data.

I studied Biochemistry at Trinity College, Oxford but quickly realised I was happier behind a computer so moved to Bioinformatics for my doctoral work at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.

Outside work I brew coffee and wine, enjoy playing the flute, cycling and keeping up to date with technology.
