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 →
This is why I love turntablism. Still gives me chills watchin this. Im going to go dust off my 1200s and start spinning again. Im serious this time.
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.

I’ve been working on a health visualization application for a Practice Fusion-sponsored developer competition as a side project, at first as an easy way to learn JQuery and build something cool, but it has turned into something much more valuable. It has really allowed me to see how much can be done with leveraging all the open data out there. With some clever front end engineering to visualize health data and action steps to really take charge of your health, we can really revolutionize personal health through technology. Smart phones...
