Ian created a user-friendly app that integrates multiple bioinformatics databases to predict potential cancer genes.

“I like conducting research, and there’s a great need for early screening methods for ovarian cancer, which is why I did this project. I made friends with lots of great people at the presentation, and it was a great experience,” said Hou.
