Cedar McKay

I am an engineer here in the lab, and a bit of a jack of all trades. My responsibilities are broken into two main areas.

Much of our work depends on analyzing sequence large streams of data using various computational techniques. New sequencing and proteomics technologies generate enormous amounts of data, which are challenging to process, analyze and store. I work with Gabrielle to link various pieces of software and custom programs together in a way that yields results that are relevant, accurate and informative. I write software as needed for our analysis, usually using the python programming language.

Systems Administration:

I keep our computers and servers running smoothly, our systems backed up, and hackers out of our hair. I am also responsible for designing the website which you are viewing right now!


I’m an avid cook and photographer. See my cooking website here: http://letsmakesomethingawesome.com/
