About me

Hello I am Casper van Mourik, a Bioinformatics Bachelor of Science. I was born on the 12th of October 1998 and have a Dutch nationality. I am fluent in both Dutch and English. This website will go into detail about my skills and projects I am currently maintaining. Feel free to take a look around! Below me are some buttons that will redirect to other websites containing more information about me.

My skills:

  • Python 2 and 3

    I am both extensively skilled in Python2 and Python3. This also comes with rigorous snakemake pipeline building experience.

  • R

    I am experienced with R and R package development. Also R markdown using R studio. My latest package: GAPGOM.

  • SQL

    I've had experience with both MySQL and SQLite, although database management is not my strong suit.

  • Bash

    I am not too fluent in this language, However I do think that I would be able to get along with some minimal research.

  • Advanced Linux skills

    I have had a lot of hobbying experience maintaining my own Linux server and its software. I know a lot of commands and get around around pretty well with this OS. I am by no means a professional IT Admin however.

  • Java 1.8

    Although I have experience with Java, it not necessarily my favourite language.

  • General web languages like html, css and js

    I know some basic html css and javascript, I can get along with it but it is not my favourite thing to play around with either (yes I mainly like backend).
