If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is what do I do, what are my professional interests and skills, perhaps which degree do I hold and maybe even what are my most significant achievements, and all that important introductory stuff, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

I studied biology for a while, then I learned something about computers, a bit of statistics and some more biology. They call this awkward combination bioinformatics, and this is what I do.

I started writing this blog because I found myself recurringly encountering certain problems, and each time scraping together pieces of a solution from three forums and two mailing lists. Instead, now I try to formulate each said solution in a neat blog post, which helps me and might at some point even prove usefull to someone else. Once in a while, more often than not, I’ll also write a post with no particular purpose, other than that I found it entertaining to write. But you know what they say, about time you enjoy wasting not being wasted.

I’ll finish this brief account with a quote, because, quoting Ocar Wilde, quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit, so here’s a pseudo-randomly chosen item from my rather small sample of witty things:

"Life is a long preparation for something that never happens."— W.B. Yeats
