Michael Barton


I'm a bioinformatician at the Joint Genome Institute. I discuss my thoughts on my blog Bioinformatics Zen. You can contact me by email at mail@michaelbarton.me.uk or on twitter @bioinformatics.

My research interests are evolution & mutation, the application of next generation sequencing, and using probabilistic and machine learning approaches in bioinformatics.

I'm passionate about open-source software in science and I have keep much of my research and code on my github profile. My favorite programming language is Clojure and I like doing simulations and statistical modelling with R.
