Welcome to Limpet™

Using AI to increase our understanding of parasite proteins. Limpet™ is a tool to explore, annotate and download protein structures from Leishmania and Trypansomatid species. It was developed in the Jeffares Laboratory by Harry Wilson.

Daniel researches molecular evolution, molecular epidemiology and quantitative genetics of microbes. His aim is to understand the interaction between evolutionary processes, demographic change and molecular biology, including host-parasite interactions. He and his team team use genomic technologies, evolutionary biology and quantitative genetics to understand the fundamental biology of microbes. They specifically focus on species that cause global problems such as the pathogen Leishmania which causes the neglected infectious disease leishmaniasis.
