Manuel Corpas - Project Leader
Manuel is the Commnuity Driven Data Visualisation Project Leader, managing and participating in projects for the annotation and analysis of transcriptomes and epigenomes of various plant and animal species. Since joining TGAC in February 2012, he has worked on the annotation and analysis of the oilseed castor bean genome which produces Ricinoleic acid, a raw material with industrial applications in automotive engines. Other species of interest include Tomato, Arabidopsis and Chicken.
Manuel holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Manchester, where he worked on the application of machine learning techniques to protein sequence family classification. He continued his post-doctoral research in clinical genomics at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge, developing the DECIPHER database and accessory tools for visualization of personal genomics data. He also received an M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from the University of Manchester, and a B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Navarra, Spain.
