A frustrated grad student with zero connection to bioethics

The Mark Zuckerberg of Open Source Genetics

My best colleague, […] - the guy who knows everything

A biologist-turned-bioinformatician. Did a Master’s degree in Ecology & Evolution at the Goethe University of Frankfurt and developed a taste for bioinformatics/computational biology along the way. Thus wrote a Bioinformatics PhD thesis on how symbiotic relationships influence genomic evolution.

Avid fan of Open (Source|Access|Science|Culture|.*). Convinced that basically everything is better if you add open in front of it. Thus co-founded openSNP – a crowdsourced/citizen science open data project that puts personal genetics data into the public domain – in 2011. For the same reason the Director of Research for Open Humans.

Traveling a lot and liking it. Interested in data driven self-improvement and Do It Yourself Biology. Speaks Python, R & Ruby (on Rails) and even a bit of Perl.
