Aleksandra (Ola) Tarkowska

Senior Software Engineer

I work in Cellular Genetics Informatics group as a Senior Software Engineer implementing large-scale data infrastructure to provide fast and easy access to petabytes of heterogeneous imaging data sets for Human Cell Atlas.

I hold Master degree in Software Engineering obtained from University of Technology in Lodz. My main interest of research and development is in the area of reproducibility, interpretability and data resources for life science.

Towards Decentralised Life-Science Imaging Data Resources – Large Scale Data Ecosystem for Single Cell Imaging.

The advancement of microscopy imaging tests the limits and pushes the boundaries of scientific studies. It often exceeds the capacity of researchers’ personal workstations and challenges the conventional data storage systems. Growing number of life-science images produced daily challenge data management systems. File system storage in not sufficient enough to organise the microscopy data. Implementing a high throughput automated workflows and data management systems, are essential because:
– they allow to integrate the heterogeneous data from decentralised data resources,
– enable programmatic access to these data,
– and support data interpretability.

Quite glad to be working from home right now - apparently when we return to @wellcomegenome apparently we're to be put to work at the Gnome Camps! 😱

This is the day: @_hubmap, the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program funded by the @NIH_CommonFund, goes live with its first data release: https://portal.hubmapconsortium.org πŸŽ‰ Hundreds of #microscopy , #singlecell sequencing, & #imaging mass spec datasets are available in our portal.
