Over the past decade, I have focused on computational biology, information system and data mining in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. My main focus is to integrate software, hardware, LIMS, data analysis and quality assurance into a seamless and dynamic system so that we can maintain commercial-grade production bioinformatics system.
The past two years, I have lead a team to build a high-throughput NGS testing lab from ground-up. In 18 month, we not only achieved CLIA certification, also brought online two panel testing (two more in process) with yearly capacity of 100,000 samples.
