Related to the work we presented at ISMB last year, our new work on making a new hashing scheme that improves on Jaccard and Hamming distances for searching large sequences was recently accepted to ISMB/ECCB 2019 in Basel, Switzerland. This is work with Guillaume Marçais, Carl Kingsford, and Prashant Pandey. A preprint of the manuscript is on bioRxiv (see Publications).
Our editorial describing the symposia that were hosted by the ISCB Student Council over 2018 calendar year was recently published in F1000 Research. I am proud to say this is the first year I attended 2 out of the 3. While I was not a primary organizer for any of the events, all three were well received and the symposia chairs, the committee members, and all of the attendees are to thank.
With the publication of this article I am also ending my tenure on the ISCB-SC Executive Team, which has been a great experience.
