I am a Postdoc at Keith Matthews lab in the Institute of Immunology and Infection Research, Edinburgh University. As part of the SilicoTryp project we are in charge of performing Targeted disruption and Overexpression of critical enzymes of Trypanosoma brucei redox metabolism enzymes and developmental perturbations to provide part of the necessary data for the construction of the model. Also generate consistent samples, so that data can be integrated and quantification results are guarateed to
