Welcome Blake as the new RNA Resources Project Leader

September 13, 2021

RNAcentral and Rfam recently completed the search for a project leader to succeed Anton Petrov and Blake Sweeney has been appointed and recently started in his new role. Some of you may know Blake as the current RNAcentral bioinformatician where he has been running the bioinformatic pipeline and speaking at conferences. With a PhD in RNA bioinformatics and a decade of experience developing RNA databases, including 4.5 years at RNAcentral, Blake is perfectly positioned to take the projects forward. The official handover date is in May, but until then Anton and Blake will be working together to ensure a smooth transition. 


Additionally, we are now hiring a new RNAcentral bioinformatician. If you are interested in applying please see: https://bit.ly/38L86Xe. If you have any questions or comments about the RNA resources please contact Blake Sweeney at bsweeney@ebi.ac.uk.
