Vincent Hanlon, PhD

I am a geneticist with a background in plant-parasite genetics, single-cell DNA sequencing, plant genetics and evolution, and mathematics. I use the Linux command line fluently, and I also use R and Python. Most recently, I worked on a method to infer which parent genetic variants were inherited from using epigenetic imprinting.

Research Assistant at Department of Medicine

Most of my work is devoted to genomically characterising Salmonella Paratyphi A with a particular focus on AMR, virulence factors, phylogeny and global distribution of the pathogen. I am also interested in azithromycin resistance within S. Paratyphi A with a focus on the increase of resistance in low-mid-income countries.

Although S. Paratyphi A is the main focus of my research, I am also interested in studying the human gut microbiome.

Fei Gao, PhD

Fei is a joint bioinformatician for both Prof Horvath’s group and Prof Chinnery’s group. She will analysis exome or whole genome sequencing in 100,000 Genomes Project, Solve-RD rare disease database and in ICGNMD (UCL). Her aim is to implement different bioinformatics pipelines to identify novel pathogenic variants or genes in rare Neuromuscular disease.  She is also using transcriptomic data to understand the genetics of mitochondrial disorders.
