Technical Reports






My research interests include systematics, molecular evolution, bioinformatics, software development, host-parasite cospeciation, genomics, and - I'm really trying to forget this - lice.

This page is getting rather out of date. To see what I'm actually up to please visit my phyloinformatics and iSpecies blogs. I'm also involved in BioCorder, and edit Systematic Biology.
PhD position on "The shape of the supertree of life" supervised by Mark Wilkinson and myself is among possible topics at the Natural History Museum. Start date October 2005.
Glasgow Name Server and Taxonomic Search Engine are two recent projects on searching for taxonomic names.
Talk given to BANG at Edinburgh on phylogenetic databases ( see also an earlier talk at Kew Gardens ATOL meeting, 2002, and the site I created after that meeting).
  Two PhD's available on phyloinformatics and supertrees. Start date Octover 2003. [These positions are now filled, 9 May 2003]
MrBayes web form (create "mrbayes" blocks online)
Daniel Huson's SplitsTree ported to Mac OS X
