Associate Professor of Single Cell Genomics

 Geoffrey Pope 

 

Geoffrey Pope Building, University of Exeter , Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK

Overview

Professor Mike Allen is an Associate Professor of Single Cell Genomics in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at University of Exeter, a Merit Scientist at Plymouth Marine Laboratory and an Honorary Fellow of the School of Physics at Bristol University. His interests are varied and encompass both blue skies and applied research topics. Blue skies research focuses mainly on understanding the role of viruses in the ocean using genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic approaches. Applied research focuses on biocatalysis, bioremediation, biotransformation, bioprocessing and technology development.

Mike’s current academic research projects include co-evolution of coccolithophores and coccolithoviruses, sphingolipid biosynthesis, novel protein characterisation, lytic and latent phytoplankton viruses, phytoplankton and virus isolation. Applied projects include biofuel production and processing, bioremediation, water sanitation, high throughput liquid processing and the development of novel photobioreactor technologies for promoting microalgal growth. 

Current and recent funding sources include The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The Roddenberry Foundation, BBSRC and Innovate UK.
