Dr. Medha Bhagwat, Informationist has a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Maryland, College Park, and has conducted postdoctoral training at NIDDK focusing on the structure-function studies of bacteriophage T4 RNase H. Medha published several articles on her research, as well as book chapters on bioinformatics classes/protocols.

From 2001 to 2008 she taught at the NCBI Core-Bioinformatics Facility training the representatives from NIH institutes in the use of the NCBI bioinformatics tools. Medha also developed and taught several 2-hour mini-courses

She conducts tutorials on using bioinformatics resources and Tools for Data Mining,and other bioinformatics resources such as Biobase, DAVID, Ensembl, and the UCSC Genome Browser.

Dr. Lynn Young has over twenty years of experience in the fields of computational biology and bioinformatics. She received her Ph.D. in physics from Purdue University where she studied vibrational modes of DNA. She worked in the field of structure-based drug design at NCI-Frederick and most recently worked in the Division of Computational Bioscience at the Center for Information Technology at NIH.

There she analyzed microarray data; developed web applications; led the development of the genomics component of the National Database for Autism Research (NDAR); and coordinated ontology development for NDAR. Lynn joined the NIH Library in August of 2010 to provide bioinformatics training, consulting, and programming.
