Dr Keith Jolley
I studied biochemistry at the University of Bath, graduating in 1993 and stayed on to complete a PhD studying halophilic proteins from Archaea. In 1996, I undertook a postdoctoral position at the University of Southampton working on meningococcal surface proteins involved in eliciting immune responses. Continuing this interest in meningococcal biology, I moved to the Maiden Group in Oxford in 1998, where I worked on the genetic characterization of bacterial carrier populations.
I now work mainly on software development and database design, including development of the PubMLST website and the underlying genomics platform, BIGSdb.
