EBI is one of 3 worldwide public repositories for genomics data. From life science experiments to basic research in computational biology, it supports researchers in academia and industry. As part of the Functional Genomics Development team, I am the frontend engineer and lead UX designer for the BioStudies submission tool. Written in Angular, it is effectively a single-page app that relies heavily on dynamic forms to accommodate generic studies that are not catered for by any other EBI service.
Hevnly is an agile startup aspiring to be the e-commerce platform of reference for curated products.
