My main power point is designing algorithms to solve bioinformatics problems, or programming existing algorithms.
My expertise is mainly in the field of sequence alignment. I have already worked on designing webservers for performing multiple sequence alignments.
I have strong scripting and programming skills whether to design desktop applications or online webservers.
I have obtained my bachelors degree in computer science from the Lebanese University.
I obtained my masters degree in Bioinformatics from the doctoral school of sciences and technology in Lebanon.
My master thesis can be divided into two parts:
- Creating two new algorithms in proteins multiple sequence alignment in java language.
- Implementation of a java web application for proteins sequences alignment in Bioinformatics domain.
Currently I am a PhD student at INSA Rouen in France.
I am a computer scientist who transitioned into Bioinformatics. My knowledge in Biology is humble. Since I have worked in sequence alignment, I have good knowledge about sequences (protein, dna, rna), public databases, alignment softwares and the algorithms they use.
With a programming experience that exceeds 6 years, I can program using almost any language. I am mostly strong in PhP, Java, Perl, C++, C#.
Past & ongoing projects:
I worked in collaboration with other colleagues on building webservers for sequence alignment.
