Dr. Tim Hubbard

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute

Tim Hubbard joined the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in 1997 and was one of the organisers of the sequencing of the human genome. In 1999 he co-founded the Ensembl project to analysis, organise and provided access to the human genome. Since then he has been responsible for groups identifying the full set of human genes and annotating their structures and is one of the leaders of the recently published ENCODE project. Prior to working on genomes, he worked mainly on protein structure, co-founding the SCOP database to organise protein 3D structures, in 1994 one of the first databases designed for the web, and co-organising CASP (Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction), one of the first blind test competition frameworks to evaluate prediction methods in biology. He is actively involved in efforts to improve data sharing in science, develop open access publishing resources such as Europe PMC and plan for the adoption of genomic medicine in health systems.
