Alan Goates
Alan Goates is Director of the Bioinformatics Department at Isis Pharmaceuticals. He currently leads multiple internal software development efforts at Isis, including the support of the antisense database pipeline and applications for the GeneTrove target validation program. He has also set up Oracle databases and Unix servers, translated chemical information into database structure and provided user support for internal software. As a graduate student, he performed research in a neurobiology lab at the University of California, San Diego developing a retro-viral expression system for ribozymes (catalytic anti-sense RNA constructs) targeted to specific sub-units of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Prior to graduate school, he spent five years as an independent computer programmer and consultant on a variety of applications such as multimedia teaching tools and cross-platform compatibility utilities. Mr. Goates has a Master's degree in Biology from his work at the University of California, San Diego, and two bachelor's degrees from the University of Utah, one in Computer Science and one in Biology.
