This month, we'll hear from Michael Caudy about Genomics and Graph Database Analysis with Clojure: Creating DSLs and Custom Knowledge Tools for Big Data Analysis.
Michael Caudy a biologist, with a Ph.D. in Biophysics from U.C. Berkeley. His area of research is genomic analysis of the molecular-genetic "DNA transcription Codes" that control neuronal cell-specific gene expression. He has been writing software for genomics research for the past several years, originally with Perl, now with other languages. He recently started to use Clojure and Mathematica as symbolic programing systems for graph analysis of biological regulatory networks, and for creating general Knowledge Tools for big data systems.
