Distributed DNA (Master's thesis)

My master's thesis was to create a distributed system based on Node.js for big data analysis of DNA sequences. I crawled publicly available genome browser Ensembl.org and saved patterns of genes (e.g., breast cancer). The user sends a patient's DNA sequence and the system looks for positive genetic matches. The process was distributed, meaning the user's sample was split and resolved individually on independent nodes.

The interesting part was that the browser was performing computing processes, so any device (smartphone, tablet, PC, etc.) can simply visit the website and participate in distributed computing.

WhoToFollow (Chrome extension)

Basic Chrome extension for parsing and crawling Twitter for recognition of users most likely to re-follow based on specific (modifiable) factors.
