John Blischak

I am a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Matthew Stephens in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago. Currently I am focusing on the following projects:

  1. develop software to facilitate open and reproducible computational research
  2. build bioinformatics pipelines to analyze single-cell RNA sequencing data
  3. teach scientists how to use software development tools like version control

The workflowr R package combines R Markdown and version control (Git) to create a website containing time-stamped, versioned, and documented results.

I created the DataCamp course "Differential Expression Analysis in R with limma" that teaches how to use the versatile R/Bioconductor package limma to perform a differential expression analysis on the most common experimental designs.
