Scott graduated from The Ohio State University in 1990 with a B. S. in Chemical Engineering and continued on to the University of California in San Diego for graduate school, where he studied improvements to monoclonal antibody production in industrial processes through cell culture and cell cycle modifications.  Upon earning his Ph. D. in Chemical Engineering, he began work in the software industry, working for MSI/Accelrys, Pangea Systems/DoubleTwist, and Athersys, until finally coming to rest at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in [[User:Lstein|Lincoln Stein's]] lab.  He is the coordinator and a lead developer of the [[Main_Page|GMOD project]], focusing mainly on core schema and tool development, but is also a developer for GBrowse as well as in the BioPerl project. Scott also teaches programming, web development and database design courses at the University of Phoenix.  Scott is a happy husband and father of twelve year old boy-girl twins.

===Georgia Tech Seminar===
 
 
Title: The GMOD Project and Community Annotation
 
 
Abstract:  Scott will introduce the Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) project, both its philosophy and the practical results.  With open source software projects covering genomics topics like database storage, visualization, feature editing and literature curation, the GMOD project tries to be many things to many people.  Then Scott will discuss work tying together several GMOD projects (Chado, Apollo, ModWare, and GBrowse) along with the popular open source wiki engine, MediaWiki, to create a reusable community annotation system.

''A talk to be given at the [http://www.occbio.org/2007/ Ohio Collaborative Conference on Bioinformatics (OCCBIO)],  Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, July 9, 2007''
 
 
Abstract:
 
The Generic Model Organism Database (GMOD) project is a program to develop generic, reusable software components for building organism databases.  The resulting collection of software tools can be used for creating and managing both small laboratory database of genome annotations and large web-accessible community database. GMOD tools are in use at FlyBase, WormBase, SGD, BeeBase and many other large and small community databases.  I will introduce several of the GMOD components and discuss several options for configuring and using the software.

The GMOD project has two related aims: to provide open source and interoperable visualization, annotation and data management software for use with genomics data, and to foster the growth of a community of developers and users who ask diverse questions but share common problems.  The project does this in multiple ways:  they provide avenues for in person interaction, including GMOD community meetings, workshops at conferences and courses

===Took a summer school course===

The GMOD projects has provided many courses to reach out to the community and get new users.  I took one of the "summer school" courses '''''WHEN, WHERE''''' which covered several topics, including Chado, GBrowse, '''''(Galaxy, Apollo, Intermine, BioMart, WebApollo)'''''.  The course brought together experts in each of the software projects (typically the lead developer) to teach and it provided an excellent opportunity both to learn about the software and to interact with both the developers and the other students who were also grappling with their own massive data influxes.

The GMOD project aims to promote communication between software communities and interoperability between software.  They provide several venues for communicating: community meetings, workshops, mailing lists, and a wiki-powered website.  They also provide some standards for software interoperability.  These are important to us '''''because ....'''''
