About Sue McClatchy

Feb 6, 2015 • Sue McClatchy

Sue McClatchy is a bioinformatician and research program manager at the Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. She teaches a research course to talented high school students who don’t know that they shouldn’t know how to do quantitative trait locus analysis. It’s good they don’t know this - they’re fearless. She entered genomics after a first career as a K-12 teacher, in which she taught Advanced Placement Biology at private American schools in Latin America. Now she has the best of both careers - great students and a really interesting research lab setting.

What I found hardest about using Git the first time was the terminology. I understand the words push and pull for example, but don’t understand what they mean in this context.
