At GYDLE inc., I work on optical mapping problems, and sometimes I find solutions to these problems. To tackle efficiently any problem, the error model for the problem must be understood. To write software that deals well with a given type of data, this type of data has to be understood, and one must be able to separate the good data from the bad data. Once in a while, I read scientific papers to keep myself up to date with the optical mapping technologies. I created a Mendeley group where I maintain a list of papers on optical mapping. The list is available here . Some of these papers describe error models for optical mapping.

According to the social network LinkedIn, I have been working on optical mapping problems at Gydle Inc. (with Philippe and Marc-Alexandre) for 8 months so far. I previously worked at Argonne National Laboratory (with Fangfang and Rick and other people). The Bioinformatics Adventure continues. Yes, I am still doing bioinformatics. No, I no longer work on assemblers. I have not worked on any genome assemblers for a while. As of now, I am more an aligner person than an assembler person (see " Sense from sequence reads: methods for alignment and assembly "). At Gydle Inc, we are 3 employees (the CEO, a computer scientist, and myself). Our CEO worked at Illumina at some point. Working in a small company is very fun. We get to do a lot of different things: algorithm design, software design, software development, software quality control, test development, ticket management, data analysis, data curation. I schedule my time around activities related to the develo
