"Nothing in Biology makes sense,
except in the light of evolution"


Who am I?

Hi! My name is Wojciech Rosikiewicz!

In my work I am a scientist, bioinformatician. I consider myself as a smart-working person, a fan of productivity, who (not always successfully) tries to implement GTD methodology into everyday tasks. The longer I work with biological problems using various computer languages, the more I like what I do, and the more fun I have:) I In my private life I am a fan of science-fiction, photography, traveling and most importantly – I am husband and father, which is probably the most challenging and rewarding task I have ever had in my life! I have many ambitious plans and objectives for my life, and if only I succeed in small fraction of them – I would be proud. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email, call me, or find your own way of contacting me;)
