Evan Sticca

Evan has been assisting in the development of pipelines for bioinformatics analyses in the context of clinically relevant results for cancer patients. He has focused on expanding existing pipelines and production of novel ones with regard to efficiency, robustness, reproducibility and interpretability. Thus far, he has improved pipeline efficiency by improving basic bioinformatics operations and is investigating increasing usability of Next Generation Sequencing reads from HaloPlex capture probes via read adaptor trimming. In the future, he looks forward to incorporating cutting edge algorithms into well maintained pipelines and rigorously testing them to ensure the production of the highest quality clinically relevant results as quickly as possible. Finally, he will continue to integrate diverse data to look for biologically relevant connections that might not otherwise be apparent.
