Resources I often recommend

First, the OMGenomics YouTube channel and podcast:



  • VSCode for writing code/scripts (and where I’m typing this text for the website right now).
  • iTerm2 as a replacement for the built-in terminal on Mac.


  • So Good They Can’t Ignore You and Deep Work by Cal Newport. I always recommend these two books to anyone interested in creating a good career – so basically everyone.
  • Range by David Epstein helped me appreciate the strengths of taking a winding path in my career.
  • Cracking the Coding Interview helped me prepare for the interviews at Google. I have gotten similar whiteboard coding interviews at some biotech companies too, though it’s not as standardized or ubiquitous as at the FAANG companies.
