Dr Ryan Ames
Research Fellow


I am a Research Fellow in the Wellcome Trust Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis (www.exeter.ac.uk/cbma/). My research uses computational approaches to gather, integrate and analyse biological big data, including working extensively with next-generation sequencing data. A major part of my work uses network approaches to study how phenotype arises from complex systems. Currently, I am using these approaches to study the evolution of pathogenicity in yeast in order to identify novel disease-associated pathways.

I also collaborate on a number of inter-disciplinary projects within the Wellcome Trust Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis. The projects include collaborations with researchers from Biosciences, the Medical School and Mathematics.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Next-generation sequence analysis
  • Network analysis
  • Systems biology
