Dr Bayraktar is a neuroscientist interested in studying human brain development and disease. His technical interests are focused on high-throughput spatial genomics. Omer was a postdoctoral fellow in David Rowitch’s lab, where he developed new spatial genomic pipelines for mapping large tissues and discovered astroglial layers in the cerebral cortex. Omer started his research group in the Cellular Genetics Programme at the Wellcome Sanger Institute in 2018. His group has developed new computational tools to integrate single cell and spatial transcriptomics data for comprehensive mapping of cell types across complex tissues. Currently, Omer is leading the Sanger-EBI High-Throughput Spatial Genomics Team to develop experimental and computational platforms to map human tissue architecture at scale.
