Paul joined the Earlham Institute in 2012 as a scientific programmer to work on a BBRSC funded sLoLa project in bread wheat (Project website: http://www.wheatgenome.org.uk/). A major task has been to identify induced mutations in a wheat TILLING population using an exome capture approach. The resulting database of mutations is poised to provide an excellent functional genomics resource for both basic and applied wheat research.

Originally trained as a plant molecular biologist, Paul obtained an MSc in Bioinformatics from the University of Manchester and worked as a bioinformatician at the John Innes Centre for six years before joining EI.
