Jason + Sonya McDermott


What about me? I’m a dad, married to a wonderful woman with three lovely kids. I’m a computational biologist by day, which means that I do biology using computers. It’s a great gig, they actually pay me to do this stuff (is what I think on a good day). Here’s a link to my work-related about page [placeholder].

I enjoy drinking beer, playing guitar, taking photos, biking (a recent activity), and what else?

Dr. Jason McDermott, senior research scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, has extensive research experience in molecular and structural virology and data resource design, data integration and prediction of biological networks, bridging experimental and computational biology. Currently, his research interests include data integration of high-throughput ‘omics data for biomarker discovery, developing systems biology models in a number of systems focusing on host-pathogen interactions, characterizing phylogenetic and functional relationships in complex eukaryotic microbial communities, and using network inference and topology to characterize organism-level phenotypes.
