My name is Aimable Habimana, I am an NGS Test Engineer here at Ginkgo. I began my career in this field after an Internship opportunity while in graduate school at the USDA-ARS. Here, I was working on cotton (“Understanding Drought Stress Response by Transcriptome Analysis") and this opportunity opened the door for me in utilizing sequencing technologies to analyze the molecular mechanisms in various organisms. After earning my master’s in biotechnology from Texas Tech University, I joined Ginkgo Bioworks; developing and working on the inhouse sequencing pipeline. I have been at Ginkgo for nearly 2 years and love the opportunity I have gotten in learning and utilizing various tools in engineering biology.
