Introduction
I'm a medical laboratory scientist/Biotechnologist looking forward to undertake research opportunities to continue my higher studies. I earned my Bachelors in Medical Laboratory Science from the university of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, with an undergraduate research project about obesity reduction effect of an indigenous medicine. Currently, I'm completing my masters of biotechnology and bioinformatics with the final year research study about reporting standards of enrichment analysis.

Gene set enrichment tests (a.k.a. functional enrichment analysis) are among the most frequently used methods in computational biology. Despite this popularity, there are concerns that these methods are being applied incorrectly and the results of some peer-reviewed publications are unreliable. These problems include the use of inappropriate backgro...
