Happy New Year! A long overdue update on whatever it is I am doing. Spoiler: It’s still a PhD.
I am not a very organised bioinformatician, and despite your best efforts, you probably aren’t either. I’ve written a tool called `chitin` that tries to keep me, and bioinformatics more organised.
I gave a talk at Birmingham University. It was ok.
Every year, the university celebrates British Science Week with a Science Fair, inviting possibly the most difficult public to engage with: children. This year, I volunteered to run a stand.
I’m published! I’m a real scientist now! Check out the application note on Bioinformatics.
The adventure continues, here’s what I’m working on lately.
Yesterday, I gave a talk at the Aberystwyth Bioinformatics Workshop on the metahaplome: a graph inspired structure for encoding the variation of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) observed across aligned sequenced reads.
