Paul Kersey

Team leader

Paul Kersey did his PhD at the University of Edinburgh on the molecular biology and genetics of the cell cycle of fission yeast, and subsequently worked at the MRC Human Genetics Unit. Since 1999, Paul has worked at EMBL-EBI on various databases, including UniProt, GOA, Integr8, IPI, and Genome Reviews. He currently leads the Ensembl Genomes team, which provides services for genome-scale data from non-vertebrate species, primarily through the use of the Ensembl software platform. The team integrates data from across the taxonomic space, and collaborates closely with particular groups involved in genome annotation and the development of domain-specific resources.
