I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Fuchu He

President, Beijing Proteome Research Center. President, Academy of Military Medical Sciences. Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences; member of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World; member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Joseph Heitman

James B. Duke Professor and Chair, Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Duke University. Associate editor PLOS Genetics, Genetics, PLOS Pathogens, Current Genetics, Fungal Genetics & Biology. Editorial board PLOS Biology, Current Biology, Virulence, Cell Host & Microbe. Recipient of 2003 Squibb IDSA Award and 2002 AMGEN ASBMB Award, fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Association of America Physicians, and ASCI.

Abd El-Latif Hesham

Professor of Microbial Genetics and Environmental Meta-Genome Biotechnology, in the Genetics Department, Faculty of Agriculture, Assiut University, Egypt.

I am the author of over 60 peer-reviewed publications. I am an Associate Editor or Editorial Board Member for international journals such as Scientific Reports; Frontiers in Microbiology; Current Bioinformatics; International Journal of Agriculture & Biology; and the Journal of Environmental Biology.

I am interested in "Microbial Genetics", and "Environmental Meta-genome Biotechnology"

Heribert Hirt

Director of the URGV Plant Genomics Research, Paris. Distinguished EMBO member, and President of EPSO, the European Plant Science Organisation. Recipient of the 2001 Wittgenstein Award. Editorial Board member of 7 journals.

Ute Hoecker

Professor of Molecular Plant Physiology at the University of Cologne, Germany, and Principle Investigator at the Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences (CEPLAS). My current research interests center on photomorphogenesis and light signaling in Arabidopsis.

Michael M. Hoffman

Michael Hoffman creates predictive computational models to understand interactions between genome, epigenome, and phenotype in human cancers. He implemented the genome annotation method Segway, which simplifies interpretation of large multivariate genomic datasets, and was a linchpin of the NIH ENCODE Project analysis. He is a principal investigator at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medical Biophysics and Computer Science, University of Toronto. He was named a CIHR New Investigator and has received several awards for his academic work, including the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, and the Ontario Early Researcher Award.

Kara C Hoover

Professor of Anthropology, University of Alaska. Associate Faulty Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Alaska. Honorary Research Fellow, Anthropology, Durham University. I am an evolutionary bioanthropologist interested in the genetic and ecological context for human adaptation. My research in population genetics investigates questions about human sensory ecology and evolutionary adaptation with regards to the human sense of smell. Previous research in paleobiology focused on measures of adaptation via developmental stability and resilience.

Tomas Hrbek

I am currently employed as associate professor in the department of genetics at the Federal University of Amazonas, located in the Manaus, Amazonas State, Brazil. Previous to working in Manaus, I worked at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras. My main interests lie in patterns and processes that generate and maintain Neotropical biodiversity. I predominantly use molecular tools, and my interests go from conservation genetics to phylogenetics. My studies focus mainly on aquatic vertebrates, but are not restricted to them.

Ming Hu

Dr. Hu is currently an Assistant Staff in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences, Lerner Research Institute at Cleveland Clinic. He is also an Assistant Professor (non-tenure track) in the Department of Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, an Associate Member of Molecular Oncology Program at Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, and a joint faculty member of Institute for Computational Biology at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. Dr. Hu received his B.S. degree in Statistics from University of Science and Technology of China in 2006 and Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics from University of Michigan in 2010. He was a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Jun S. Liu’s group in Department of Statistics at Harvard University from 2010 to 2013. He jointed the Department of Population Health, Division of Biostatistics at New York University School of Medicine in 2013. In 2016, he moved to his current position in Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Hu has more than 10 years of experience in statistical modeling and statistical computing with applications in statistical genetics and genomics. Recently, his research is focused on genome-wide mapping and analysis of chromosome spatial organization. Dr. Hu has published more than 60 peer-reviewed research papers covering statistics, bioinformatics, statistical genetics and computational biology.

Xuehui Huang

In the paw few years, we developed high-throughput bioinformatics methods for quantitative genetics and genomics studies. Based on the findings and methods, our future works include the genetic analysis of complex traits and the development of bioinformatics methods for genomics and genetics studies.

Zunnan Huang

Professor in Chemistry; Director, Key Laboratory of Big Data Mining and Precision Drug Design; Vice Dean, Graduate School of Guangdong Medical University; PhD in Computational Chemistry and Physical Chemistry obtained from the University of Oklahoma; Guest Editor, Current Pharmaceutical Design, Current Medicinal Chemistry, Frontiers in Chemistry; Reviewer for more than 30 SCI journals including Journal of the American Chemical Society.

Jane M. Hughes

Professor, Griffith School of Environment, Australian Rivers Institute,Griffith University, Brisbane. Member of Editorial Boards of Heredity, Journal of Freshwater Science,Marine and Freshwater Research.
