Bioinformatics Software Developer & Linux System Administrator

I'm currently developing BioVM - a virtual machine with pre-configured Bioinformatics software.

Previously, I have contributed in the development of software like ITQuery, RiboPlot and riboSeqR wrapper (hosted at RiboGalaxy) and VIGA. Some of this work has been included in scientific publications.

A complete list of the work I have done is available.
