As Bioinformatics Analyst, my role is to help biomedical experts with challenges regarding organizing, analyzing and making sense of a large amount of data generated by genomic studies. My long-term mission is to uncover factors driving gene expression and differences in clinical traits, develop appropriate models for them and explain the mystery of hidden/missing heritability.
