After graduating with a degree in computer science, Chase Miller became intrigued by the value and potential of computational tools in the biological sciences. This interest led him to pursue a Ph.D. in biology in Gabor Marth’s laboratory, where he designed, developed and published some of the first web-based, big-data genomic visualization libraries. One of his most well-known projects, IOBIO, has become a popular set of web applications and tools used by thousands of researchers across the globe.
In addition to his computational work, Miller frequently attends genomic conferences around the world, where he gives numerous talks on the importance of visualization in bioinformatics. His passion for genomics and visualization continues at Frameshift, where he is working to develop novel tools that allow for the analysis of complex genomic data in a way that is easier to understand, work with and share with others.
