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. 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.
Sherlock was involved with the Stanford Microarray Database, an early attempt to organize the extensive data generated by DNA microarray analysis. 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.
