Johan Viklund Senior System Developer

System development, perl, python, groovy, git, R, containers

I earned my PhD in Evolutionary Biology at Uppsala University. In my thesis I focused on phylogenomics of oceanic bacteria and mitochondria.

I have always had a very big interest in technology and especially computers and how to program them. My urge to not only use technology for technology’s own sake led me down the path of studying bioinformatics and then doing a PhD in Evolutionary Biology.

At NBIS my main focuses have been on building analysis pipelines, webservices and databases. But I have also been involved in teaching different programming languages and version control using git.
