Head of the DNA Sequencing Service
I’m a Dundonian graduate of the University of Dundee. I was very excited to join Life Sciences here as a local boy and am proud that my development has paralleled that of the service itself – we now process 10 times more than when I started. As Senior DNA Sequencing and Services Technician, I am happily dedicated to maintaining Dr Helps’ very high standards. It’s been a fascinating journey as we’ve moved from electrophoresis based to capillary based sequencing and I’ve developed a wide range of alternative protocols and know-how which I enjoy sharing with our customers. The service is a great place to work as part of a wonderful team and each day brings a new challenge. When I’m not at work I’m a family man and I enjoy walking my dogs and a generally quiet life….when life allows!
