JackHaving recently embarked upon the BBSRC Interdisciplinary Biosciences Doctoral training programme at the University of Oxford, I am currently undertaking a three month rotation project within the Castello lab. This work is largely based in silico and focusses on establishing a transcriptomic analysis pipeline which could be applied to data in the context of the lab’s ongoing investigations into various mechanisms of viral infection. However, tissue culture and molecular cloning based work also form part of my day to day activities within the lab. The Castello group provides a diverse and welcoming team environment within which to develop new ideas and master new skills.
