Bert Overduin, Ph.D.

About

I am a member of the Vertebrate Genomics Team. Most of my time I spend giving workshops on the use of the Ensembl Genome Browser and the Ensembl Perl API and dealing with user questions and problems on the Ensembl Helpdesk and 1000 Genomes Helpdesk.

Background

I have a M.Sc. degree in Biology (with specialisation Biochemistry) from Leiden University. My Ph.D. I did in the Department of Genetics of the VU University Amsterdam, where I worked on the isolation of a fungal disease resistance gene from tomato by means of transposon tagging. After a postdoc at the University of California Davis, that focused on disease-associated programmed cell death (apoptosis) in plants, I left science for 6 years. During this time I worked as an IT consultant for Capgemini, mostly in the areas of web development, functional application management and business acceptance testing. Since April 2005 I am working at the EBI.

Starting 1 May 2014 I will be working as a Training and Outreach Bioinformatician at Edinburgh Genomics, the high-throughput sequencing facility of The University of Edinburgh.
