"Charged laptop computer with one of the following browsers installed: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. No iPads please."
Keith Bettinger, Software Engineer at SCGPM: Keith is responsible for user experience on our genetics cluster where he designs and implements technical solutions related to data privacy, data commons, and support of various tools and technologies. Keith sits comfortably at the intersection of IT and Bioinformatics and has a keen eye for details.
Prior to joining SCGPM, he was Chief Programmer at Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Science Research (CIBSR) where he developed a multiplatform neuroimaging analysis and MRI visualization application.
Jennifer Hillman-Jackson, Application support coordinator for Galaxy Team: Jennifer's scientific and technical experience is primarily with early transcriptome assembly, expression analysis, and gene discovery; annotation with a special interest in comparative genomics; multi-species conclusion layer databases; processes that ensure scientific accuracy and reproducibility in analytic pipelines; data modeling on ENCODE and dbSNP projects; NGS biomedical informatics methodologies; and project management.
Jennifer developed a broad scientific bioinformatics background from working in both industry (Incyte 1994-2004) and academics (University of California, Santa Cruz 2004-2010) and began first collaborating, then working with the Galaxy Project in 2010.
Ramesh Nair, Bioinformatician at SCGPM: Ramesh is the bioinformatician in residence for the CIRM initiated Stem Cell Center of Excellence. He is responsible for diverse bioinformatics needs for the Center Initiated Projects and its extensive collaboration network. He brings a diverse engineering and extensive scientific background to solve some of the biggest technical challenges in biotechnology.
Prior to joining SCGPM, Ramesh was a Bioinformatics Analyst at Center for Cancer Systems Biology where among other things, he was sole developer of next-generation sequencing (NGS) pipelines for genome sequencing (Exome-Seq) applied to follicular lymphoma and transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) applied to lung cancer tumor microenvironment.
