InterMine team

InterMine was formed in 2002 at the University of Cambridge, originally as a Drosophila-dedicated resource, before expanding to become organism-agnostic, enabling a large range of organisations around the world to create their own InterMines. The InterMine team is part of Micklem Lab , headed by Gos Micklem.

InterMine's core team members are all based in Cambridge and are generally available during UK daytime hours .

Gos Micklem
InterMine is part of the Micklem Lab, led by Gos Micklem. Gos is also director of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute . Gos can often be found writing grants and winning Department of Genetics awards for enthusiastic lecturing. (He says that this was probably a statistical anomaly).
Adrián Rodríguez-Bazaga
Computer Scientist with a M.Sc. in Data Science & Machine Learning. His interests span from Machine Learning applied to cancer bioinformatics to the handling of biomedical big data.

Previously, Adrián has worked in a variety of places in both the private and public sectors, such as the Spanish National Supercomputing Center and the Spanish Council for Scientific Research. He also has participated as Google Summer of Code student with InterMine in 2018.

When he has some spare time, he loves to play chess.
Ankit Kumar
Ankit is working as a Research Associate at the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge. He recently developed a component library (in React.js) for InterMine. He is trying to increase his knowledge in mathematics and biology. He loves to play and watch cricket. In his free time, you can find him working on open-source projects, binge-watching, reading CSS blogs, or playing computer games.
Ankur Kumar
Ankur is a research associate at the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge. He is trying to create shareable and reproducible software infrastructure for building the next generation of life sciences research platforms by using advances in modern cloud technology. He is always happy to talk about the challenges and opportunities that these distributed systems present. Apart from computers, he is also interested in synthetic biology. One can often find him at related events and seminars around Cambridge.
Daniela Butano
Software Engineer with 15+ years of experience in web applications development in a variety of industries. Experienced in J2EE open source frameworks, servers, libraries and web services.

She joined the InterMine team in 2010, working for 3 years, primarily in the backend development, then she moved away to the game industry but she changed ideas very soon and came back thinking that genes and proteins are more fun than treasures and crowns!

She doesn't tweet, but sometimes, when forced, she posts on InterMine's blog .
Kevin Herald Reierskog
A passionate programmer who ended up at InterMine by chance following his interest in Clojure(Script). Is mostly versed in frontend development, but doesn't mind as long as he gets to write code in a fun language.
Rachel Lyne
Biologist/bioinformatician with over 10 years experience working with InterMine and complex biological data, she forms the liaison between the biology and the software development.

Rachel also runs training workshops for InterMine users and provides help-desk support.
Sergio Contrino
With InterMine since 2007, has worked mostly in the production of modMine (modENCODE project), ThaleMine (Araport project) and our own HumanMine and FlyMine .

Likes databases and data analysis, has produced a couple of music albums of his compositions.
