Doctor Fayeza Khan - Research Associate

I’m currently working as a post-doctoral researcher and carrying out the copy number variation analysis of human whole genome sequence data at GOHaD. This work involves both developing and applying a bioinformatics pipeline for CNV analysis. My previous research experience as a PhD student was in studying the human alpha-defensin CNV. I worked under the supervision of Professor John Armour at the University of Nottingham and was responsible for developing assays to type the multi-allelic CNV, study SNP+CNV haplotypes, and investigate the role of the CNV in disease.
