Abstract or Summary
  • As DNA sequencing technologies continue to advance, resulting in increased throughput and decreased costs, both the number of researchers utilizing these technologies and the quantity of data outputted by a single sequencing experiment will, likewise, continue to increase. Currently, DNA sequence data can be generated at a much faster rate than computational tools can be created for the management, storage, and analysis of these large-scale datasets. While large genome-scale datasets have the capacity to fuel the next generation of scientific discovery, leveraging these datasets requires that researchers identify ways to uncover meaning from the data. Both performance of a research project in Dr. Dee Denver’s Laboratory and an internship experience with Intuitive Genomics, Inc provided me an opportunity for exploration of methods for uncovering meaning from genome-scale datasets. Intuitive Genomics, Inc. is a bioinformatics services startup located in St. Louis, Missouri. Serving as the company’s Marketing Manager, the ultimate goal of my internship project was significant contribution to the growth and success of the startup. Areas of responsibility included marketing, sales, strategic development of products and services, and administration. Key accomplishments included significant contribution of content to the company’s newly launched website, effective market research and competitor analysis, development of marketing materials, successful submission of an application for funding, professional interaction with current and potential customers, and representation of the company at a vendor show. The internship experience exposed me to a dynamic entrepreneurial environment, increased my knowledge of computational science, gave me first-hand experience with a variety of business concepts, enhanced my written and oral communication skills, and increased my confidence in professional interactions with customers and colleagues. These new skills and exposures will prepare me well for a career with a scientific corporation. Intuitive Genomics benefitted from an employee’s 100% dedication to the company. I served as an administrative contact, a presence in the office space, conducted a variety of pertinent research initiatives, developed meaningful content for the website, developed marketing materials and served as a point of contact for current and potential customers.
