I am bioinformatician working on the FAANG (Functional Annotation of Animal
Genomes) project in Iowa State University, where I got my PhD in
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology two years ago. I am very
interested in developing R/BioConductor packages, though I am in my early
career as package developer.
I am one of the co-developer of the R/Bioconductor package "ATACseqQC",
which has been publised in BMC Genomics (
I also actively answer questions related to using of this package via
https://support.bioconductor.org/. This corresponding author of this paper
is Dr. Julie Lihua Zhu. This paper has been viewed for nearly 5000 times
and cited for 7 times since its publication in 2018.
If I can get scholarship support, I will assist Dr. Julie L. Zhu to give a
tutorial workshop on how to use this package in one of the afternoon
practical sessions, if possible.
I believe that attending the conference will give me a global view of the
current development of the Bioconductor, especially packages related to
singe cell sequencing. And by meeting the BioConductor user community, I
will be able to gather current demand and feedback. It will be also a great
opportunity to learn from the senior developers.
Thank you very much for your consideration!
