It is our pleasure to welcome back Dr. Adrien Melquiond in the group! Adrien previously worked six years in our group. In 2013 he moved to the Hubrecht lab in Utrecht where he has been performing bioinfomatics analysis of a huge amount of next generation sequencing data in the group of Wouter de Laat. Two years later he is returning to his roots: computational structural biology!
Since February 1st, Adrien is working for the BioExcel Center of Excellence H2020 project and for the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC), responsible among others for teaching R to our master students. Teaching is at his heart as illustrated by a recent educational paper in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education we co-authored with Dr. Joao Rogridues (see a previous news item on this here).
All fresh and nicely shaved! Quite different from his Facebook picture for those of you having access to it… :-)
