I am a bioinformatician currently doing a PhD at the IBD lab of Dr. Julian Panès under the joint supervision of Azucena Salas and Juanjo Lozano. My research interests include data integration (my PhD topic) and functional enrichment.
Other interest are helping with data to make better decisions and improve processes, from transparency, lawyer activities, media handling to open source activities. To be more effective at this I’m in touch with some organizations and I created some packages deposited in Bioconductor, CRAN, rOpenSci, rOpenSpain and GitHub.
Outside programming I enjoy hiking, jumping rope and diabolo as hobbies.

CRAN review

I’ve been doing some analysis on the review submissions of several projects of R. However, till recently I couldn’t analyze the CRAN submission. There was cransays’ package to check package submissions which on the online documentation provided a dashboard which updated each hour.

rOpenSci submissions

Comparing rOpenSci review process to the Bioconductor review process. Most important differences are external reviewers and build on external machines as well as a longer review time.
