Weigh-In Thursday October 30th: #JonFail

By |

Here at 2 Fat Nerds each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed. If anyone is interested in taking part in weekly tracking, leave a comment!

In an attempt to optimize the speed and accuracy that I put up the weigh in post, I’ve […]

Delayed!

Just a quick note that the weigh in is a bit delayed today as I am transferring the database to a new install. I hope to post tonight!

Steady increase of sequencing and the future of medicine

By |

To keep in tune with yesterdays theme of Bioinformatics and big data, today I was looking at the growth of our lab, in particular the amount of sequencing preformed at our facility.

The HiSeq2500 is illumina’s major workhorse, and perhaps the most versatile and widely used next generation sequencing platform used in the industry. Running this¬†machine […]

Data Retention in the world of BigData.

By |

Today I was asked to create a data retention policy that manages ~60TB of our generated sequencing data. This data is both in-house and customer, collaborative and cross-institutional, and generated at our facility and elsewhere. No singular policy can surely cover all of these things, but nevertheless, I have to formulate something that will work.

Football is lame.

By |

I too returned to the gym this week, much like my mother and sister. It has been a long time since I’ve worked out with any regularity to a ¬†multitude of reasons, and it was finally time. Despite having to return back into the house several times for headphones, gym cards, keys and every other […]

I'm Back

By |

Last week I got to watch my Dad run a Half Marathon. I never, in my wildest dreams, would have imagined my family would turn into half-marathon-running superstars. It’s amazing! Being in the stands at the finish line at the Half was bittersweet. I was incredibly happy to be there, given my recent move half […]
