Bioinformatics is a relative new and exciting field in clinical research. Wet labwork produces gigabytes of data and bioinformaticians apply techniques from data science to find biomarkers that contribute to disease. This website is a personal blog on bioinformatics, tools, algorithms, code, statistics, the struggle to get everything to work and my personal journey to get my PhD. On top of that I discuss interesting medical papers.

Nothing on this website has been peer-reviewed and my opinion is my own.

  • GPG signature of commits in GitHub

    GitHub is a web-based version-control and collaboration platform for software developers. I use it all the time to version the soruce code of my PhD project. The GRIAC and RBMB bioinformatical groups both have a github page setup as well, even though we don’t use it very much. But if we were to work together even more, we should be able to trust the commits we make to our collaborative repositories. For that reason, GitHub had instroduced signed commits. Below is a script to make a GPG signature and to add this to your local Git configuration to automatically sign your commits.
