After a long start to 2020 including the past four very busy weeks, I’m happy to announce that today March 16th 2020 I accepted a position as Research Scientist at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development in Baltimore, MD, USA.
Yesterday was an extremely exciting day for me and my colleagues. We finished a project we had been working on and shared it with the world. Meaning, it’s done and we can relax for a little bit while we wait for feedback from our peers.
I have recently been getting reminder emails from the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists. The application deadline is July 15th, 2018!
Last year I submitted an entry to this competition and I enjoyed the experience, even if it was a bit rushed.
The following text is an email I sent to several of my friends from the LCG undergraduate program I studied. There I talk about keeping in touch, I invite them to ENAR 2014, and also talk about some philosophical questions regarding our future. I’m posting it here because I don’t mind sharing these thoughts and because I don’t have the current email addresses of many former LCG students.Enjoy
I’ve been recently impressed by Steven Salzberg talk as you might have noticed, and browing his home page I stumbled upon his opinion piece (also by James Yorke): Beware of mis-assembled genomes.
During this week’s Genomics seminar at the Genome Cafe in the Biostats department, Steven Salzberg gave a talk on his team new published paper: GAGE: A critical evaluation of genome assemblies and assembly algorithms.
Today is my first day of classes and Kasper couldn’t have had a better timing to share the link to Genomics in 2011: challenges and opportunities. There, the Editorial Board members of Genome Biology gave their opinion on: important 2011 papers, influential people for their careers, advice to young scientists, top challenges in their field, and unlimited money projects.
