Dave Clements looking cheeky

I work on the Galaxy Project for Johns Hopkins University, where I organize meetings and courses, prepare training materials, and improve Galaxy's documentation wiki, and web presence. I'm also hoping to touch the (Python!) code.

Prior to working on Galaxy I ran the GMOD Help Desk from 2007-2010, where I did similar work. I am still involved in the GMOD community as a representative of Galaxy. Since 2013 I telecommute from the Toomey Lab in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Oregon. From 2007 through 2012 I telecommuted from the Phillips Lab in the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (CEEB), also at Oregon.

My background is in computer science. I have been working in biological databases since 2000.

Prior to working on Galaxy, and for NESCent and GMOD before that, I worked as the database manager at the European Renal Genome project (EuReGene), as a member of the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Project (EMAP). This project studied kidney development and disease. My work focused on gene expression patterns, and anatomy ontologies.

Prior to EuReGene I worked for ZFIN, the zebrafish model organism database at the University of Oregon for 5 years as a database administrator and software engineer.

My pre-bioinformatics career included

GMOD Era Presentations, Tutorials, Workshops, Demos and Posters

Work done during my time at GMOD. See my Galaxy home page for other presentations.

  • Gene Expression Databases: Where and When, presentation given at NESCent in April 2007. Describes common issues with gene expression databases focusing on anatomy ontology issues. Uses 4 websites to demonstrate different ways to deal with these issues.
