LAPTI members.

Where do they come from? I can't say.
But I bet they have come
a long, long way.

We see them come
We see them go.

Crazy RussianPavel Baranov (Павел Баранов) aka Pasha (Паша) and Pól Ó Reithe (Irish) serves LAPTI as PI (read the windshield).
Digital QueenWhile working on her Ph.D. thesis Audrey Michel invented sub-codon profiles for the analysis of ribosome profiling data. She is coordinating RiboSeq.ORG now.
Butterfly Patrick O'Connor is a Ph.D. student. Once he discovered that in bacteria mRNA moves through the ribosome like a caterpillar. Now he got a bit RUSTy.
Pom-po Anjali Pai is a Cancer Biology Ph.D. Scholar.
Lucky Stephen Heaphy is a Ph.D. student who found a genetic code with all codons coding for amino acids.
Romika Romika Kumari is a Ph.D. student, she studies the role of G-quadruplexes in translation.
Stephen Stephen Kiriny is a research assistant who is teaching GWIPS-viz to become smarter.
Martina Martina Yordanova is a postdoctoral fellow who is asking mRNA if it has memory.

SysAdmin James Mullan (Paddy). Paddy is a SysAdmin. He makes sure that everything works in LAPTI and APC.
Cyclohexamide Dmitry Andreev (aka Antibiotic) is a regular visitor scientist from Moscow State University. Dmitry is interested in regulation of translation initiation in eukaryotes.
Chris Xiangwu Lu (a.k.a. Chris) is a Ph.D. student from CIT/NSilico working with us on a collaborative project.


Zena Zena Abbas was working on a collaborative project supported by NCRC that focuses on transcriptomic analysis of whole blood in febrile infants.
Sveta Svetlana Koroteeva valunteered to process several data tracks for GWIPS-viz GWIPS-viz tracks.
Sandor Sándor Dedeyne created strand functionality in GWIPS-viz browser and made a number of additional important improvements
Emily Emily Power was developing the ribo-seq transcriptome viewer

Lisa Elizaveta Sokolova was a visitor from the Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow. She was probing the nucleotide context of translation termination in mammals.
Vimal Vimalkumar Velayudhan developed a number of usefool tools for RiboSeq.ORG resources. He is now at APC Microbiome Institute.
Kevin Kevin O'Riordan worked on his Master project in LAPTI. During the project he upgraded GWIPS-viz to a newer version and made a number of improvements to it.
Paul Paul Korir worked in LAPTI for a short period as a postdoctoral researcher. He moved to EBI to work on processing EM imaging data.
Claire Claire Donohue. After completing her Master degree in Bioinformatics in LAPTI, Claire worked on GWIPS-viz. Many GWIPS datasets were processed by Claire. She also was a key person behind RiboGalaxy development.
BI Sharon O'Sullivan. Sharon was a research assistant in LAPTI for two years and is still involved in our work. We hope she will come back soon.
Shauna Shauna O'Donovan studied intransitive relationship between codons in the genetic code while working on he MSc project in Bioinformatics.
Siobhan Siobhan Cleary was a partial member of our lab in academic year 2013/2014 when she was working on a collaborative project with Prof. Rosemary O'Connor. Siobhan moved to a Bioinformatician position at the West Midlands Regional Genetics Laboratory in the Birmingham Women's NHS Foundation Trust.
Carmen Carmen Ferrara was a visitor to our lab from Naples. She is interested in an incredible extremophile Sulfolobus Solfataricus
ManuAnmol Kiran (अनमोल किरण) was the mighty hero behind DARNED database. After obtaining his Ph.D. he left to sunny Malawi to fight infectious diseases at theWellcome Trust Campus.
De Bo Christof De Bo was an itern from Belgium, he helped us to populate GWIPS-viz with data.
Lazy hunterWhile doing his Ph.D. with us Virag Sharma had a chance to be entered into Guinness World Records for the discovery of the largest set of evolutionary conserved recoded genes in a single study. Irish connections didn't help. Now he is doing his first postdoc at MPI-CBG with Michael Hiller. We wish him strength in his resistance to German temptations.
Gearóid Gearóid Fox was a MSc student who helped us to bring GWIPS-viz to life. He went to the capital of Not Cork to work on his Ph.D with Not Darwin.
Nicole Nicole Vaughan was a MSc student who was exploring transcriptional landscape of the pregnancy specific glycoprotein genes cluster.
Olexander Oleksandr Nychyk was a summer student supported by a vocational fellowship from Wellcome Trust. After completing his BS in Genetics he went to do his Ph.D. at University College London..
Python Girl Komal Sanjeev was a remote intern whose magic spells can be found in DARNED database source. She went to do a master in computer science at Stony Brook.
Ioanna Ioanna Tzani was a rotation Cancer Biology Ph.D. Scholar. Ioanna tried her grit on BAD gene, very BAD gene. She continues her work on Cancer with John Atkins.
Dave the Builder David Murphy (aka Dave the Builder) was working in LAPTI in 2011/2012. Dave developed CodonLogo. Dave moved to Titian Software as a software developer.
wiki mani John O'Mahony (aka the wiki man) started community based annotation of RNA editing while working on his final project in UCC Biochemistry programme.
Kat'kaKathy Barriscale was a rotation student from PhD Programme in Cancer Biology in 2009/2010. By means of comparative sequence analysis Kathy discovered an important Recoding event (programmed ribosomal frameshifting) in expression of a nematode homolog of one of the most important human tumour suppressor gene, adenomatous polyposis coli (APC). After completing her Ph.D. in Tommie McCarthy lab she started her postdoctoral reseacrh at Tom Moore lab.
