Well, it is my first time to write annual self-appraisal on my blog. Here is what I have got and what I am going to do.


  • I have contributed three projects to Novogene: MSI algorithm, TMB algorithm, and ACMG auto-interpretation pipeline.
  • The first half year is for MSI and TMB, and the latter half year is for IVD project.


  • Wrote a project exceeding 3000-line codes, which enables me to handle relatively complex system.
  • Finished reconstructing several of my old projects using python.
  • Learned basic grammar of Scala.


  • My wife bought me a MacBook Pro 13-Inch(2017), which I used to write this article. It is necessary to have the proper tools to do good work.
  • My cooking skill improves a lot, especially Stir-fried Shredded Pork with Green Pepper.
  • Have read six books, which enlightened me most is Stories about Ming Dynasty.
  • Got my master diploma from AMMS.
  • Exercise once per week.


In 2018, I still hold the opinion that scientific writing and coding are the most critical skills for a bioinformatician. Therefore, my flags for 2018 are:

  • Reconstruct one of my projects using Scala
  • Finish a machine learning project on Kaggle
  • Study English 30 minutes per day
  • Read 10 books
  • Exercise three times per week, which is twice than what I have done in 2017
  • Spare average 2 hours per day on the family

Embrace 2018!
