"Guy Plunkett III"

I'm a bacteriologist who stumbled into genomics and bioinformatics when he wasn't looking, and found that he liked it. My expertise lies in the area of prokaryotic genomics, especially within the Enterobacteriaceae. I've been known to refer to myself as a “bioinformaticist without portfolio (or training).”
