David Green - BSc (Bristol) PhD (Cambridge)
David Green has been engaged in research into aspects of mammalian fertilization and early embryonic development for the past 25 years. Areas of interest have included the acrosome reaction, sperm surface proteins, fertilization biophysics and zona pellucida structure. Current research interests are focused on gene expression in the developing follicle and pre-implantation embryo, and use of GFP transgenics to monitor early embryonic development in real time.

Jo-Ann Stanton - BSc (Hons) (ANU), PhD (UWA)
Jo-Ann trained as a molecular biologist specialising in analysis
of gene expression and subtractive hybridisation techniques. Her
current research interests are in gene expression in the oocyte
and preimplantation embryo as well as database structures that describe
complex biological systems. [email Jo-Ann]
Chris Mason - BA, BSc (Otago)
Chris is the Bioinformatics Programmer & Database Administrator
for the group. He completed a BSc in Computer Science in 2002 and worked
as a Research Assistant and Programmer before taking up his job here.
Chris writes most of the group's software using predominantly C, C++, Perl, PHP and Java.
Chris has written software for the Mac OS X, UNIX and Windows operating systems.
Moyna has a Masters Degree in Zoology and joined the group in July 2004.
She is involved in researching new gene expression patterns for the Greenegg
database and analysing pre-implantation embryo development on the confocal
microscope. She also manages the group's transgenic mouse colony.
Mustafa Dameh BCom (Hons) (Otago)
Mustafa completed his honours degree in Information Science in 2002.
He is undertaking a PhD in the area of Bioinformatics, he is looking
at building computer models for biochemical pathways in mouse preimplantation
embryo genesis. [email Mustafa]
