Love science and research? I do! I’m an extremely enthusiastic researcher with a Ph.D. from the Cell and Molecular Biology program offered jointly from SDSU and UCSD. My dissertation research was on viral persistence in the stem cells of the central nervous system. I enjoy engaging in cross-functional, multi-disciplinary, collaborative team endeavors. I am meticulous in organizing and documenting my research findings and have created customized databases for improved knowledge management. I also enjoy coding/programming and building computers on the side, and have created/managed web sites and databases for academic life science laboratories. I hope to help facilitate the Su Lab’s collaborative efforts.
My Publications can be found on my Google Scholar page.

BioGPS opened 2016 with a publication in Nucleic Acids Research, right after the New Year holiday. Throughout the year, new designs for the site were being created, reviewed, adjusted, reviewed, adjusted, and more review/adjustments in anticipation of a site redesign for 2017. A Plugin registration Blitz was held in March and April; followed by a Plugin Review Blitz in May. The BioGPS spotlight...

There are a LOT of projects going on in the Su Lab–so many, that it’s hard to keep track of them all. By now, I’ve posted year-end summaries for some of the major projects in the lab including: MyGene.info: MyGene.info 2016 Year-end review MyVariant.info: 2016–More incredible for MyVariant.info than MyGene.info Gene Wiki / WikiData: 2016–A busy year for Gene Wiki...

As mentioned in MyGene.info’s year-end review, the team behind both services have been very productive. In addition to all the work they did on MyGene.info (and the back-end/BioThings services behind both MyGene.info and MyVariant.info, they made the following improvements to MyVariant.info this year: -2016.01.06: ClinVar data structure overhauled -2016.01.18: ClinVar data updated...

It has been a busy year for the MyGene.info team as they worked to apply the lessons they learned in building MyGene.info and MyVariant.info towards a BioThings framework, and the generation of additional services. At this rate, 2017 is on track to be a very interesting year. In 2016, aside from all the BioThings improvements happening behind-the-scenes, MyGene.info saw a number of improvements...
