Post-Mortem Analysis

What worked well:

  • As this project was multi-faceted requiring skills ranging from understanding of biology to re-purposing software source code, each individual's talents became particularly useful in driving this project to a completion.
  • Following AGILE principles in organizing our project
  • Team communication via slack was pivotal in keeping this team together

What didn't work well:

  • The team was quite innovative with their solution but, not investing more time in a secondary backup plan in-case there were issues with plan-A.

What could have been differently:

  •  Extensive benchmarking involving larger BLAST databases would be nice to have
  • Project timelines and deadlines to be communicated well in advance so as to not rush the results in the end.
