I work for an organisation called BUGS Bioscience: a not-for-profit collaborative enterprise combining the latest developments in molecular biology and genomics with advanced mathematics and software. We provide integrated molecular surveillance services to help tackle global health challenges such as vaccine preventable diseases and antibiotic resistance.
We use Clojure, Clojurescript and Reagent as a large part of our stack (as well as everything else you need to do well at the game of buzzword bingo… Docker, AWS, etc. etc.). We believe Clojure is the perfect language for bioinformatics thanks to its great concurrency story and powerful sequence abstractions, and so I’d like to present a short talk on how we use the language, what our future plans are, and maybe even start a discussion on the benefits Clojure could bring to the field of bioinformatics and genomics projects as a whole.
