Over the next few days we're going to have a look at the participants at the BioMarine business Convention Think tanks.
First up is Dr Mike Allen, Senior Scientist at Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
His interests are varied and encompass both blue skies and applied research topics. Blue skies research focuses mainly on understanding the role of viruses in the ocean using genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic approaches. Applied research focuses on biocatalysis, biotransformation, bioprocessing and technology development.
