Donald Jeff Milton
Assistant Director, Antisense Drug Discovery
I have over 20 years of biotech software experience in both academic and industry settings. I began my career at Molecular Simulations Inc (now Biovia) developing bioinformatics tools before the first draft of the Human Genome. After a short diversion in the aviation industry, I returned to bioinformatics as a developer at the Protein Data Bank where I created and managed some notable projects including the ImmersivePDB; highlighted in the book “Advances in Computers” by Marvin Zelkowitz. I joined the Research Bioinformatics Department at Genentech (gRED) in 2010 and managed multiple software projects for core labs including research pathology and next-generation sequencing. In 2013 I accepted a position at Ionis Pharmaceuticals where I currently lead software development for the Drug Discovery department. My current focus is in-silico oligonucleotide drug design and software to support high-throughput in-vitro screening.
