Alex Qin is a final year undergraduate completing his Honours year in the Bachelor of Philosophy degree at the Australian National University.

While his project mainly revolved around using traditional molecular biology tools to solve problems in molecular biology, his more recent research interests have involved using computational techniques to visualise and analyse large datasets in immunology and neuroscience, supplementing traditional molecular biology tools in life sciences. Currently, as part of his Honours project, he's using computational techniques to analyze datasets on central nervous system pathologies generated with high throughput techniques.
