James had an unconventional journey into Bioinformatics. He dropped out of university twice but managed to use his programming skills, that he had developed through his own initiative, in conjunction with his determination to eventually end up at the Garvan Institute as a Genomic Systems Analyst. In this episode we talked about Bioinformatics, what type of questions programmers can answer compared to pure biologist, the cutting edge technologies being developed at the Garvan, the education system, his world record, and more.
This week we talked with Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow Meow. You probably know him as the guy who put the Opal card into his hand, yet this is probably the least interesting thing about him. In this episode we talk to Meow about Biohacking, grinding, the democratization of science, Monsanto, big organic and why Neil deGrasse Tyson needs to take his own advice. And this was just the first half of our hour and 40 minute conversation. We hope you enjoy.
