Paul Shaw has a background in biological sciences with a BSc(Hons) in molecular biotechnology and MSc in bioinformatics. He is currently employed as a plant scientist specialising in bioinformatics at The James Hutton Institute in Dundee and his current research focuses on the development of databases and visualization tools for the analysis and exploration of high throughput genotyping technologies. He also has an interest in the development of tools to aid in the analysis of large scale genome wide association studies. He has been involved in the publication of more than ten papers in high-ranking biological journals, written a book chapter on induced mutation in barley and regularly attends international conferences in both biological and visualization fields. He is also involved in large collaborative projects with international research institutes and UK plant breeders. He is currently working towards a part-time PhD with The James Hutton Institute in Dundee and Edinburgh Napier University looking at the problems associated with the visualization of large scale plant genetic pedigrees.
