For the last twenty years I've been writing networking software for the various devices (routers, switches, WiFi gear, cell aggregators) that make up the Internet. More recently I've played with cloud switches, but basically I've been doing embedded system networking.
Lately I've been thinking I want to get out of the infrastructure game and work on something related to genetics research. The job doesn't have to be directly involved, I'd just like to feel like I was helping things along in some way beyond providing the internet connection.
I know there are a lot of issues in corralling and sharing the genome data, but other than that I'm flying blind. Could someone with experience in genetics research clue me in where there might be some crossover?
Bonus points: a company with an office in the Silicon Valley.
