Dr Sophie Shaw
Associate Research Fellow


Sophie completed her undergraduate degree in BSc Molecular Biology from the University of Exeter in 2010, graduating with first class honors and the Society of Biology Top Student award. During her degree, Sophie undertook a 10 week Genetics Society funded studentship investigating protein interactions during DNA replication in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, which lead into her undergraduate dissertation. From this, Sophie began her PhD at the University of Exeter on the pathogenic yeast species Candida albicans. The research project encompassed identification of allelic expression imbalance through computational analysis of RNA sequencing data and investigation of the functional consequences of this phenomenon through phenotypic screening of constructed strains.

Broad research specialisms:

Investigation of the functional consequences of gene expression patterns through a combination of computational analysis and wet lab experimentation.
