Dr Chong Chu did his PhD training on computer science and engineering at University of Connecticut. He is interested in algorithm design and method development in fields of computational genomics and bioinformatics. During his PhD period, he has developed several open source tools on structural variation calling and genotyping, de novo repeats assembly, and gap closing on draft genomes.
Now he is a research fellow at Department of Biomedical Informatics, Harvard Medical School. He is currently working on structural variation and copy number analysis in normal and cancer cells.
