Dr Shaw joined CGEBM as a bioinformatician in May 2015 from the University of Exeter where she completed her PhD in Biological Sciences investigating the phenotypic impact of allele specific expression. Following her PhD, Dr Shaw undertook a post-doctoral position researching transcriptional responses during environmental inter-species interactions. She brings a background in ecological and environmental genomics (eDNA), with core expertise in RNA-seq and functional annotation, and whole genome sequencing and assembly, along with skills in fungal and plant molecular biology.
Dr Shaw has experience in the delivery of bioinformatics training modules in varied genomics analyses, including UNIX, short read genomics, assembly methods, RAD sequencing, transcriptomics, and shotgun whole genome and amplicon based metagenomics. Dr Shaw brings these skills to the training portfolio currently being delivered to the University of Aberdeen research community by CGEBM.
