Bio

 

I came to the Su Lab from UC Berkeley where I worked in a phylogenomics lab primarily doing bioinformatics application development. Before this I did work on the analysis of medical images, the analysis of animal vocalizations, and digital system design. I am currently working on the myvariant.info project.

Developers typically query MyVariant.info API in an analytic workflow or a live web application, so that they don't have to waste time building and maintaining their own local annotation database. We recently had some requests from our users for a complete list of all variant...
