Nigel Dyer

I am a member of Sascha Ott's group where I have been funded by BBSRC to provided bioinformatics support for a number of research projects within the school of Life Sciences and beyond.

My current projects are:

Previous projects, for which funding has finished but where I continue to provide support include:

Other acknowledged work


In 2007, after 25 years working in the Telecoms industry (working on the same product, System X,for almost all of that time) I took voluntary redundancy from Ericsson, and completed a 4 year MSc/PhD within MOAC before moving on to take up this position within the Systems Biology Centre at Warwick

More details as to how I came to make such a radical career move.
