I am a Database/Application Programmer in the Stein Lab at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. My current assignment is with the WormBase development team, where I focus on software engineering aspects and data integration. Previously at the institute, my work focused on other bioinformatics topics, such as design and optimisation of large scale cancer genomics databases, as well as working with genome-wide association study data sets.
This blog tracks the progress on projects I am working on — private and professional — and I also use it to publicise comments on various topics and to make announcements that are relevant to software designers, bioinformaticians and scientists. Most importantly, feedback provided by comments on blog posts will be more than welcome.
