Andrew is Associate Professor at the Scripps Research Institute in the Department of Molecular and Experimental Medicine (MEM). His research focuses on building and applying bioinformatics infrastructure for biomedical discovery. His research has a particular emphasis on leveraging crowdsourcing for genetics and genomics. Representative projects include the Gene Wiki, BioGPS, MyGene.Info, and Mark2Cure, each of which engages “the crowd” to help organize biomedical knowledge. These resources are collectively used millions of times every month by members of the research community, by students, and by the general public.
