Jamie Al-Nasir MPharm (Hons), PhD research student
I'm currently undertaking an PhD under the supervision of Dr. Shanahan at the Centre for Systems and Synthetic Biology. My research interests are in Computational Biology, Molecular Biology, Next Generation Sequencing, Bioinformatics and Cloud-computing. I have lately been with Next Generation Sequencing data repositories and have implemented a number cluster-computing applications for biological datasets
I'm also interested in molecular visualisation for which I have developed Zeus, a molecular visualisation package and Neuropharmacology (I presented my Masters Thesis Characterisation of Cyclic Neuroprotective Binding Ligands with Prof. Austen at the Royal Society of Chemistry peptide symposium and St. Georges Research Day).
