EMBL-ABR network: an interview with Jac Charlesworth
Category : Uncategorised
Tasmania has a small but vibrant bioinformatics community and one of its very active members is Dr Jac Charlesworth, who runs a computational genomics research group at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research at UTAS. She also manages the computational infrastructure for genomics research at Menzies, and provides bioinformatics training and support.
Asked what she wants to see EMBL-ABR achieve, communication and training were top of her list, she replied: I think training with a decent level of basic communication and interaction is really important. It also stops you from getting too isolated, too stuck in your particular silo, making sure what you are doing is connected to the bigger picture or the bigger field.
