Service Description

Bioinformatics: Expert
I am a Bioinformatician by training (Master of Bioinformatics). I am well acquainted with the nature of the biological data and most of the statistical and data mining techniques used to analyze it. I have a thorough understanding of basic alignment algorithms like Needleman –Wunsch and Smith - Watermen (successfully attempted to code these algorithms in C). I have well studied most of the important high-throughput database searching algorithms like BLAST, psi-BLAST, FASTA. I have a very good grasp of sequence alignment concepts like dynamic programming, substitution matrices (PAM, BLOSUM), local and global alignment etc. I am well versed with many concepts in structural biology like basic elements of protein structure, characteristics of protein surfaces, conformational energy calculations in proteins, thermodynamics of protein folding etc. I have well studied many of the well known biological databases like NCBI NUCEOTIDE, NCBI GENE, NCBI SNP, NCBI SRA, Protein Data Bank, UniprotKB; the type and range of information they store and their information retrieval systems (Entrez, NCBI eutils, SRS).

Machine Learning: Advanced
Machine Learning has been one of my strongest skills. I have earned a very good apprehension of many popular machine algorithms like Artificial Neural Networks, Support Vector Machines, Markov Chains and Hidden Markov Models, Random forests and nature inspired optimization algorithms like Genetic Algorithms and Ant Colony...
