Barry Moore


Broadly speaking I am a molecular biologist who has converted to bioinformatics. The first 10 years of my career I was doing molecular biology and biochemistry bench work on problems associated with translational recoding. Since 2003 I have mutated into a bioinformatics geek. My work is currently focused broadly in the field of genomics with projects in comparative genomics, genome annotation, biomedical ontologies, personal genomics and human genetic variation, and high throughput imaging. I am enthralled by the opportunities that are being opened by the low cost/high throughput sequencing and imaging technologies available today and thoroughly enjoy working on problems that span the gap between wrangling the technologies needed to manage large genomic datasets and pondering the biology that makes it all interesting and relevant.
