Genome Browser

I’ve been spending a lot of time playing with bioinformatics tools. I’ve been working with “jbrowse” a javascript genome browser, for my thesis project. Going to add more annotation tracks really soon.  Check it out. Also been working with Hadoop, in order to become a better data scientist. If you’re interested, here’s a sweet tutorial on using Hadoop for Transcriptomics.

R for Visualizations

Been experimenting with R. I whipped this up really quickly using the tutorial from Flowing Data

Innovation In Genetics Using Big Data and Opensouce

I read an interesting interview lately on O’reilly about the power of Big Data Science and traditional molecular biology. Molecular biology is becoming more and more digital. The very vocabulary of molecular biology are DNA base pairs which are expressed as A’s,T’s, C’s, and G’s parallel information technology which uses 0s and 1s. Scanned sequences in molecular biology are now rating on the terabyte scale. In genomics, the term big data is far from a buzzword. For high frequency and RNA sequencing scans the output is on the terabyte scale.... Read The Rest →

Word Cloud For My Delicious Tags

I recently decided to do a Wordcloud using Delicious tags from my own account. Although I am a heavy heavy user of Delicious, I don’t always tag my bookmarks so the wordcloud is not a accurate portrayal of my web browsing activities. It is interested none-the-less.  

Gettin Back Into Triathlon Shape

Been going to the pool about twice a week and that has pretty much been it in terms of cardio. Still tryin to gain some weight before triathlon season starts up again. I’ve gained about 7 lbs of it back since Dec.  Ended up doing a duathlon last season because my swim just wasn’t strong enough but this time around it’ll be different. Im sure of it. My goal is still to gain 10 more lbs by hitting the weights and eating like a goldfish, before I start cutting again.... Read The Rest →
