As the Bioinformatics Manager at UCGS, I lead our team of highly skilled and dedicated bioinformaticians. Our team provides the necessary computational expertise to manage, analyze and mine the vast amounts of data generated here at UCGS. We develop automated analysis pipelines and build efficient data storage systems and web interfaces to facilitate seamless analysis and review of test results all the way from wet lab to reporting. We work with post-doctoral fellows, genetic counselors, and lab technologists on various research projects to automate our lab workflows and expand our testing repertoire. We also collaborate with various external IT and bioinformatic groups on various projects involving Next-Generation Sequencing data analysis.
I feel very lucky to be a part of a team of extremely talented, passionate and hard working individuals here at UCGS.
