John Mitchell Group

Welcome to the John Mitchell research group

University of St Andrews

A Ph.D. studentship entitled Microbe Wars: Exploring the Maintenance of Microbial Diversity Using Artificial Life is now available in St Andrews, jointly supervised by Dr John Mitchell and Dr Anne Smith.

We are an Informatics and Computational Chemistry research group. Our group is based in the Purdie building on the North Haugh in St Andrews.

Research areas we are interested in are enzyme catalysis, protein-ligand interactions, molecular evolution and structural bioinformatics, computational toxicology, prediction of solubility and other molecular properties, and the classification of drugs used for doping in sport.
