  • On scientific censorship and ‘bitchiness’

    My first paper was published in 1977, and despite many fights with referees they were mediated by committed and intellectually fair Editors (especially in the controversial field of bioenergetics); thus I suffered not a single rejection until ca 1995. This occurred when a paper we had submitted to the then European Journal of Biochemistry, following […]

General information

Most of our bioanalytical projects are at the interface between postgenomic biological systems, quantitative analytical chemistry and machine learning, with a special emphasis on evolutionary computing and systems biology. We have particular interests in chemical genomics, network biology and e-science. Other areas include pharmaceutical drug transporters, iron as a major cause of disease, and synthetic biotechnology.

Visitor information

The University of Manchester campus comprises two main areas: the Sackville Street area, formerly the UMIST campus, and the Oxford Road area, formerly The Victoria University of Manchester campus. See maps and directions to The University of Manchester. We are located inthe  Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (Princess Street). Parking is in the Charles St car park, satnav M1 3BB. A nice colour pdf map of the city centre may be found here.
