Born in Belfast in 1946, Barklie was educated at Queen’s University, where he gained a first class honours degree in Botany. For his postgraduate degree, he remained at Queen’s, studying the replication of bovine enterovirus RNA in Prof. Sam Martin’s laboratory. This was his first venture into virology and started an enquiry into the basic processes of virus infection that continued for the remainder of his career. After gaining his PhD in 1971, Barklie moved to CalTech as a postdoctoral fellow in Robert Sinsheimer’s group where he continued his interests in RNA synthesis using phiX174 as a model. He returned to the UK in 1974 to take up a position as a member of the scientific staff at the MRC Virology Unit in Glasgow and one year later joined the Institute of Virology at Glasgow University as a lecturer. Thereafter, he remained at Glasgow University where his excellence was rewarded with a personal professorship in 1987 and eventually Chair of Virology in 1995.
