Course developer (with Jerry
Trzciakowski and David Zawieja), SBTM616, Computational
Systems Biology I, Member, sub
-
committee for curriculum development, 2007
-
2008. This course
has been developed and was given for the first time in the fall of 2008.


New lecture materials were develop
ed for 26 hours of CSB I (SBTM 616) for the bioinformatics
section of this course, 2007.


Developed a wiki for dissemination of lecture materials, readings, and coding examples for
SBTM616, SBTM625 Computational Systems Biology I, 2008
-
2010.

Bioinformatics and Image Analysis. Course content required restructuring as CSB I (SBTM 616)
was modularized into two parts (1. Biostatistics
-

SBTM 624, and 2. Bioinformatics and Image
Analysis
-

SBTM 625). 2010.

Contemporary understanding of digital technologies

System administration

Adoption of new technologies
-

As Principal
Investigator of a group that conducts cutting
edge research in computational systems biology, I make purchasing decisions for appropriate
hardware and software for advanced research.


Cluster computing
-

In my current role as Director of the Computational B
iology and
Bioinformatics Laboratory, I am the system

administrator for two
research computing clusters: a
112
-
core Mac XServe cluster, and a 32
-
core Linux cluster


Hardware assembly
-

I am experienced in
routine maintenance of computational hardware

and
with the assembly of Linux
-
based computers from components. I have assembled a Linux
machine with an advanced GPU processor so one of my team members could experiment with the
use of GPU processors in molecular dynamics simulations.
