Default [ sequence alignments, big data, bio informatics ] x [ programming and UI design ]

TLDR version:
I'm good with ruby, and web applications as well as User Interface design... I'm DEEPLY interested in working in this big data/ sequencing and genomics field... what should i do?

Hey all,

So this is my first post .. so HI THERE!

question stands as this:

basically I've been researching into a tool called "crossbow" and I've begun to brainstorm around ways to incorporate this into a larger web application.


I'm a marketer by college and a self taught programmer / UI designer.

I see huge areas for advancement in all of these high throughput sequence methods and I want to get involved .. it wasn't until recently that I've entertained the idea that I can make substantial progress in this area ..

My first foray into the field was a open-source liquid handler ( basically a automated pipette ) for 96 well microplates

After completing this project I've decided that electrical engineering and hardware are "solved problems"

SO I've begun working on launching off AWS computing on EC2 to run sequence alignments .. as well as researching into some of the shortcomings of storage and processing for these HUGE datasets

... so the question is:

- what areas could use someone with my skills?
- where to find more labs needing sequence alignments and SNP locating?
- what are awesome tools out there that are under-utilized because they're miserable to use?

UXI ( user experience design )
Web application design / database integration
API design / integration
deep interest in bio / bioinformatics

Default another addition

how about genome browsers

i havnt looked into this too much ..

i know DNAnexus has a product that i've looked through a bit which was a bit of an eye-sore ...

what are some of the more prevalent browsers out there.. and how do they look / how are they to work with?
