I have published research works in the fields of granular matter physics, network sciencemachine learninguser interfaces and bioinformatics. But above all I like to create useful systems. I  enjoy the process of designing and implementing web based services that stand the test of time. My current project that I dedicate most my time to is an e-book on genomic data analysis:

  • The Biostar Handbook - it is modeled by the content on this site and is a comprehensive guide for beginning bioinformaticians.

I am the  maintainer of this site:

  • Biostar Q&A platform  more of a jack-of-all-trades:  lead developer, interface designer, database manager, sys admin, dev-ops etc. whatever needs to be done.

Currently I work as a  Professor of Bioinformatics at Penn State. Within that position I serve in various roles:

Comment: C: [META] Noticed an issue with code markup and open parentheses (
... That is one weird error for sure. The original raw content does contain an extra parenthesis that disappears here. I will investigate. I'll open a github issue for it: https://github.com/ialbert/biostar-central/issues/421 ...
