A brief history
Although formally trained as a molecular biologist, I have been programming since 2000. In 2015 I became a full-time programmer and now work as a bioinformatician at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute in Toronto creating web apps that help biologists to analyze, manage and visualize their data.
The COVID-19 interactome is a project mapping interactions between the SARS-CoV-2 virus and proteins found in infected human cells. I did the analysis for this project in Python and built a static website to act as a repository for that data using Gatsby.
ProHits-viz is a suite of interactive webtools for analyzing and visualizing protein-protein interaction data. This is the project that started my web development career. I am currently working on a new implementation of the site using React with Node.js and Golang on the backend. The current version of the site can be seen at prohits-viz.org (in progress 2020), while the previous version can be seen at prohits-viz.lunenfeld.ca (created 2017), and the first version can be seen at prohitstools.mshri.on.ca (created 2015).
