Practical Tools For Innovation O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology
Conference January 28-31, 2002 -- Tucson, AZ
Mike Deyholos earned a Ph.D. in molecular biology from McGill University in Montreal, and now works at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where he produces and analyzes microarrays to learn how plants cope with drought. Almost two years ago he swore, Scarlett O'Hara style, that he would never again do multiple BLAST searches via the web, and he sat down to learn the requisite computer skills. Since then he has established several microarray databases built exclusively on Open Source tools, and continues to try to make these databases more useful so that people will get off his back.
