Head of Production Software, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
Matt Wood heads up software development at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, where he is responsible for the software that drives the Institute’s world class sequencing facility, along with the next generation of DNA sequencing technology.
Matt’s interests lie in adding value to biological data through scientific software: after completing his PhD, he’s built grid services in Nottingham, web-scale search engines in New York City and genes in Hinxton.
Matt is an advocate of agile development with Scrum, sensible semantics and, of course, the duck billed platypus.
