David Sexton joins Sapio Sciences

Sapio Sciences has announced that David Sexton has joined the company as director of consulting. Sexton was previously the director of the computational genomics core at Vanderbilt University where he managed a 24 person research resource in the Centre for Human Genetics Research. In this capacity he was responsible for architecting solutions for information technology infrastructure, bioinformatics, software development and data analysis. Sexton’s group worked on supporting CLIA-compliant initiatives as well as research oriented projects.

Sexton was also responsible for data management and a laboratory information management system (LIMS) in support of a DNA bio-repository and genotyping for Genome Wide Association Studies. Additionally, he implemented an information technology infrastructure and bioinformatics analysis pipeline for Vanderbilt’s next-generation sequencing core.
