Early and personal lifeEdit

Sherlock obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in genetics in 1991 from the University of Manchester, where he also earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology three years later.[1] Gavin is a huge fan of Manchester United and loves to referee the American Youth Soccer Organization's soccer games. He also works as a DJ at the Department Retreat and loves traveling.[2]


Sherlock was involved with the Stanford Microarray Database, an early attempt to organize the extensive data generated by DNA microarray analysis.[3] In 2012, Sherlock, along with Barbara Dunn and Daniel Kvitek, published a study of the influence of yeast on the flavor of wine during fermentation.[4]
