Developing apps that help people explore their genetic makeup. The goal is to help them utilize the information to lead healthier and happier lives..
Initial projects will involve human genotype data from SNP microarrays (23andMe-type data).
Later projects will include exome and genome sequencing results (mainly vcf files).
Will be required to utilize biological databases (SNP/gene/expression etc.) to interpret genotype files and produce interesting findings to our users.
Projects will combine users answers to questionnaires (age, sex, ethnicity, symptoms, conditions, etc.) with their genotype data in order to provide highly relevant information.
Results will ideally lead to suggestions for users on how to mitigate risks and enhance strengths. A knowledge of nutrition and beneficial lifestyle changes (self-hacks) would be greatly beneficial for this section.
Python is the most popular language spoken here.
Experience with Django would be extremely beneficial, but not required.
