David Marshall Bioinformatician, The James Hutton Institute Invergowrie, Scotland UK

Dr. David Marshall has worked on development of genetic marker technologies and DNA sequence diversity in both crop and wild plants and their deployment in applications from the analysis of the genetic structure of natural and breeding populations of crop plants to genome analysis and comparative genomics. The major focus of his interests is on genetic marker applications with barley, potatoes, wheat and soft fruit (blackcurrant and raspberry) in collaboration with Professor Robbie Waugh and other Geneticists at Dundee, in particular, the design and application of SNP-based genotyping arrays. Dr Marshall has developed of software tools to support the analysis of genotype and sequence data.
