Hello world! I’m Erik, and I’m a molecular biology student moonlighting as a bioinformatics/computational biology developer. This blog is just a place to talk about interesting things I’ve found during my work in these fields, especially as they regard transporter proteins, sequence analysis and bioinformatic software development.
Disclaimer: I do not have formal training in software development though I love learning about design patterns and object-oriented programming. I enjoy writing useful software almost as much as I enjoy working on bioinformatics problems and would love to share any useful things I’ve encountered. However, my lack of training makes me wildly naive; if you stumble upon something I’ve written that is particularly misinformed, it would be wonderful if you corrected me.
