Career Story Blog Post By Helene McMurray, PhD, Director of the Bioinformatics Consulting and Education Service of the Edward G. Miner Library and Assistant Professor of Biomedical Genetics
Mythology offers a wide variety of hybrid creatures comprised of bits of other, more garden variety animals. From the Griffin, Chimera, and Sphinx to a horde of other creatures from various traditions to the post-modern Rainbow Unicorn Butterfly Kitten (if you haven’t seen this on social media, run a Google Images search for the name), stories and images of mixed up, muddled up creatures abound. For the past two years, these conglomerations are the entities with whom I most identify. During that time I have developed and run the Bioinformatics Consulting and Education Service in Edward G. Miner Library here at URMC, which makes me a Scientist-Consultant-Educator-Librarian.
