Lynn Young joined the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Library in 2010. She is a member of the NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program. In this program she provides support for high-throughput data analysis and computer programming.
Previously, Lynn worked in the field of structure-based drug design at NCI-Frederick and most recently worked in the Division of Computational Bioscience at the Center for Information Technology at NIH.
There she analyzed microarray data; developed web applications; led the development of the genomics component of the National Database for Autism Research (NDAR); and coordinated ontology development for NDAR. Lynn joined the NIH Library in August of 2010 to provide bioinformatics training, consulting, and programming.
