Anil Thanki - Scientific Programmer
Anil joined TGAC in September 2011 and is a scientific programmer involved in development of TGAC's internal solutions for data management and visualisation. These include our own new TGAC Browser and visualisation plugins for MISO, TGAC's Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
Before joining TGAC, Anil completed his MSc in Bioinformatics from the University of Leicester and a BSc in Bioinformatics from Saurashtra University, India. He has undertaken independent research in "Detecting sequence mobilisation by L1 retrotransposons" and was involved in two short-term group projects whilst studying: "Building web interfaces for short read mapping of high throughput sequencing data" at the University of Leicester, and "Development of genome comparison and annotation tool (GCAT) using Java and BioJava" at the Birla Institute of Scientific Research (BISR), Jaipur, India.
Anil's main area of interest is software development for the scientific community.
