Elected moderator on Unix & Linux. Feel free to @ping me in chat if there's anything I can help you with.

I am a computational biologist with a background in biology, not computers. My PhD work was on gene prediction and comparative genomics but my current research is in systems biology, specifically protein-protein interaction networks.
