      Hi James, I got really interested in birds when I was about 9 and started bird watching, joined guided walks and started going to local YOC (young section of the RSPB) group meetings.
      I got interested in phenotyping because I always wanted to find out how things worked, this led me to physiology (how the body works) and neuroscience (how the brain works – but this was restricted to how the spinal cord works, how oxygen receptors work and how the auditory – hearing – system works). This took me to phenotyping ‘how does the body work without a specific gene’?
