Chris Berthiaume

I support reproducible computational research in the Armbrust Lab. My primary focus is working with the SeaFlow instrument, our in-house continuous flow cytometer. I write software to analyze SeaFlow data (seaflowpy, popcycle), manage the data itself, and create systems for realtime collection, processing, and monitoring of SeaFlow data while at sea. I’ve also worked on a number of genomics projects in the Armbrust Lab involving RNA microarrays, Sanger and 454 EST library creation, SOLiD and Illumina short-read transcriptomes and genomes, and de novo SOLiD short-read metagenomic assemblies.
