Hi! I’m Chris Creevey. I am an expert in Rumen Systems Biology and a world-leading specialist in computational biology with extensive experience working with high-throughput sequencing data from complex microbial communities and non-model organisms. Funded by the BBSRC, Newton Fund, DEARA and EU Horizon 2020 my group develops de novo computational strategies for metagenomic and metatranscriptomic data from natural microbial communities and their hosts. My group currently consists of five PhD students and two post-docs. I have published over 80 papers including several in Nature, PNAS and Science and have been cited over 6,000 times. In the HoloRuminant project, I am the leader of WP1 – Consolidation of existing and development of novel knowledge on ruminant microbiomes.
