Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine: All under one roof – a pioneering vision for research success

February 1, 2017 – by ResearchFutures

“Togetherness is a beautiful thing – Professor Jim Hughes and Steve Taylor, two senior biomedical researchers from the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine at Oxford, discuss the joy of collaboration. In their latest shared project, the pair are developing software that will enable scientists to visualise the three-dimensional structure of a DNA molecule inside a cell.”

On a late November Saturday, the CSynth team participated in “Super Science Saturday: The Science Behind the Headlines” at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History (, demonstrating activities designed to showcase some of the incredible research going on in Oxford.

Steve Taylor and a team from the Higgs/Hughes lab demonstrated their CSynth software, first exhibited at New Scientist Live in September. Using a huge touchscreen, the team showed how CSynth allows users to visualise and interact with genomics data in three dimensions.
