Keith Bradnam

Associate Project Scientist (Bioinformatics)

Davis, CA

I am an Associate Project Scientist in the laboratory of Ian Korf at the UC Davis Genome Center. I first started my career in bioinformatics back in 1993 as a Masters student at the University of Manchester. I can also be found talking about various issues relating to genomics and bioinformatics through my own twitter account (@kbradnam), the Assemblathon twitter account (@assemblathon), and on my ACGT blog (
