Dr David Studholme
Associate Professor in Bioinformatics


Postgraduate researchers

  • James Harrison Jamie uses computational comparative genomics methods to study recent evolution in bacterial pathogens. His PhD studentship is funded by the BBSRC.
  • Georgina Karamura Gina's project is titled Developing a lateral flow device specific to Xanthomonas campestris species and other related species (Banana Xanthomonas Wilt).
  • Dr Christine Sambles Christine is a bioinformatician working on the genomes and transcriptomes of the ash dieback pathogen.


  • Thomas Laver Tom worked on the application of second-generation sequencing technologies to applications in biological and environmental metrology. His PhD studentship is funded by a BBSRC CASE award in partnership with LGC. After his PhD, he moved to the University of
  • Paul O'Neil Paul worked on comparative genomics of Phytophthora ramorum, the fungus-like pathogen responsible for disease outbreaks on larch and other important trees in the UK. HE subsequently moved into the Exeter Sequencing DNA Service.
  • John Bosco Tayebwa John Bosco was sponsored by NARO of Uganda during 2010-11 to work on bioinformatic analysis of complete genome sequences of bacteria causing disease on the East African banana crop. He then pursued an MSc in Bioinformatics at the University of Skovde.
  • Arthur Wasukira Arthur was sponsored by NARO in 2010-11 to work on molecular basis of pathogenesis in the phytopathogenic bacteria infecting banana. He is now continuing his research at Makerere University in Uganda.
