5 – GeneWeaver Building a Graph to Map Variants to Genes Using Neo4j 4 x and Bulk Import

02 Aug, 2021



Mapping all the possible variants within genomes is challenging because there are hundreds of millions with billions of relationships and new data added all the time. Using bulk import with Neo4j 4, we write the nodes and relationships to map genetic entities and give researchers new insights.

He worked in computational fluid dynamics then physics and has recently moved to biology by way of geology (if that is a way). He is currently involved with analyzing microscope images and in building genetic graphs. He has released open source codes, some detailed in papers with hundreds of citations, others never heard from again except in the dark recesses of github.
