Amy Tang

Functional Genomics Curation and Training Project Leader - Petryszak team: Gene Expression

Amy joined the functional genomics team in 2011 as a curator and Perl developer for ArrayExpress. She manages and delivers training for the team, curates content for the Expression Atlas, and collaborates with software developers on the design of ArrayExpress and Expression Atlas user interfaces. Before joining EMBL-EBI, Amy was a senior bioinformatician in the Ensembl GeneBuild team, curating gene models for organisms including horse, rat, mouse, cow and gorilla. She holds a PhD in mouse epigenetics (2006) and a MSc in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (2008), both from Imperial College London.
