I work at the Medical Informatics Laboratory at Hospital das Clínicas da Universidade de São Paulo, the largest medical facility in Latin America. I learned about OpenWetWare from mashing up synthetic biology resources, and I've joined because my work is totally related to bionformatics/synthetic biology. I spent most of my day simulating molecular biology/population genetics experiments, mainly aimed at viral populations. So, I have large colections of protocols, experimental designs and related. By the way, I'm fluent in the omics jargon and surely can help OOW to be a better place. Right now, I'm writing down my Ph. D. thesis, so don't expect important additions so soon.
