MR JAMES COOPER HAS LEFT CAMBRIDGE AND WORKS NOW IN PROF CHANDRAN'S GROUP AT THE UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH

Prior to my current role, I worked at Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute as an Advanced Research Assistant, expanding and maintaining the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) miRNA Knockout Resource (miRKO), with focus on high-throughput vector construction, mouse ES cell culture, targeting, and genotyping.

I moved to the University in March 2014, to provide core support to the newly established BHF Oxbridge Centre of Regenerative Medicine. My primary role has been in Genome Engineering with focus on editing/transgenics using CRISPR/Cas9 - projects I have been involved with so far have been listed below:
