I am just wrapping up a consulting project I have been working on for the past 4 months. I have been putting together the new website for a database called Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM for short.) This database is a catalog of human genes and genetic phenotypes (how genes manifest themselves in humans).
This has been a complex project, I spent a lot of time dealing with data issues, specifically data cleanliness, and data interchange (this community badly needs standards for data interchange and linking.)
That being said it was a lot of fun and a great learning experience.
