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:

Answer: A: Do you need a deduplication tool for FASTQ data in fastp?
... I will say that de-duplication is a far more complex concept than what people/end users initially assume. Even interpreting the meaning of a deduplication plot is far from trivial - I had to give it two tries myself. * https://www.biostars.org/p/83842/ * https://www.biostars.org/p/107402/ In the e ...
