Barton Lab Members

  • Samuel Hokin (Senior Computational Scientist)

    Sam received his Ph.D. in plasma physics from MIT, did his post-doc at the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow, and spent the first 10 years of his career on the faculty of the UW-Madison and then KTH in Stockholm. His middle career was in web development, at a small business that he still co-owns in Madison. His third career started when Kathy Barton hired him to analyze a bunch of RNA-seq data in January, 2013.

    At Carnegie, Sam works on modeling transcription factor regulatory networks in the Barton Lab, and does various bioinformatics tasks in the Evans Lab and anyone else that would like some help. He is 50% at Carnegie DPB and 50% at NCGR in Santa Fe, where he lives. At NCGR, he works on data warehouse software and is delving into the genomic signatures of human diseases.
