Sarkans team

The Functional Genomics Development team, led by Dr Ugis Sarkans, develops software for ArrayExpress, a core EMBL-EBI resource, and the BioStudies database, a resource for biological datasets that do not have a dedicated home within EMBL-EBI services.

Together with the Expression Atlas team we build and maintain data management tools, user interfaces, programmatic interfaces, and annotation and data submission systems for functional genomics resources. We also collaborate on a number of European ‘multi-omics’ and medical informatics projects in a data-management capacity.
