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.

At Sapio, he will engage with Exemplar LIMS customers to provide project management, LIMS workflow design and implementation services. Sexton will also oversee Sapio’s services for next gen sequencing (NGS) data management and analysis pipelines, as well as other high volume data management needs such as for chemical compounds and cell imaging data.

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
