Based at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Jim is responsible for the design, management and implementation of the primary analysis pipelines that produce DNA sequence and genotype data for a number of CGGH collaborations, including MalariaGEN and TRAC. These pipelines have to be able to handle very heterogenous data from high-AT haploid parasites through two orders of magnitude in genome size up to human genome data. The rate that MalariaGEN and its collaborators generate data is ever increasing and analyses are always developing, so the pipeline team has a constant challenge to handle the tracking, analysis and release of complex data to collaborators both within the group and worldwide. Previously, Jim worked in industry and with the Ensembl web team. No stranger to large-scale data-sharing initiatives, he has also worked with 1000 Genomes and UK10K.
