Gos Micklem did his PhD on yeast at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge and before, during and after his post-doc at the ICRF in London he was distracted by Drosophila in Maria Leptin’s lab in Tubingen. He then joined the young Sanger Centre where he was responsible for setting up high throughput human genome sequence analysis when no-one ( including himself) knew how to do it. After three years he left the Sanger Centre for a Cambridge mouse (later human) genetics biotech start-up where he was part of the founding management group and headed the bioinformatics group.

Four years later he re-joined the academic world at the Genetics Department in Cambridge doing more bioinformatics. Since 2004 he has been a member of both the Genetics Department and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics where despite not being a mathematician or a physicist he is the Director of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute.
