Adam's Zoology Homestead

Hi there, thanks for visiting my virtual homestead on the world wide web.

    I'm a research technician in the Michael Smith Laboratories at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-- the co-host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics. I'm also affiliated with the Department of Zoology through my laboratory, and I'm grateful to be using their server to host various bioinformatic websites. My office is in Suite 2405 of the Life Sciences Institute at UBC, and you can reach me at (604) 822-5582.

    Basically I get to think logically all day, which is absolutely fantastic.

    I began working for the C. elegans Gene Knockout Lab at UBC on January 1st of 2004, after four years as a research technician for the Gene Therapy Initiative at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts from August 1999 to May 2003 (you can still see a replica of my Harvard homepage). Prior to that, I built my computing proficiency while employed as a research technician at the Center for Molecular Neurobiology (back when it was known as the Neurobiotechnology Center) of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio from September 1998 to June 1999. I've been a technician in Genetics since graduating from northern Ohio's most progressive liberal-arts institution, Oberlin College, with honors in Biology in January of 1998. Other places I secured gainful employment at during the 1990s (however temporarily) include: The Feve, the Ohio Department of Education, Columbus Airport Authority, Ohio State's Pharmacognosy division, a café/bakery, Noble Roman's, a law office, and even a Dairy Queen.

    Travel-wise, I've visited 35 of the 50 largest U.S. cities and 163 of the 251 U.S. cities with a population of over 100,000 people. Altogether, I've visited 39 of the 50 U.S. states and 5 of the 10 Canadian provinces.
