Apologies - the RAID controller on our main server has failed. This affects our database and other services - most of these WILL NOT WORK! We are working to restore this as soon as possible, but are suffering ongoing problems.

abYsis which allows most of our antibody analysis to be performed is still available at www.abysis.org

Research

My research focusses on structural bioinformatics: developing tools to investigate and understand the relationship between protein sequence, structure and function.

Within this general area, my main interests are protein modelling, structural analysis, structural immunology, effects of mutation on protein structure and disease, application of relational databases, automation and software development. I have a particular interest in the sequence and structure of antibodies.
