A career in bioinformatics, Ewan Birney
Interviewee: Ewan Birney. A career in bioinformatic.
What my job is, with people in my team, is to put together really the information about the human genome in a way that can be used. And so to do that we have to take the raw genome data and its, its assembly, and we have to store it and then we have to process it and then we have to give it to users, and those are mainly molecular biologists in the lab.

For the first draft of the genome sequence, both teams were working to identify the number of human genes. Here, Ewan Birney, a "numbers man" from the public genome project, explains how genes can be recognized and the data from the genome project used.
