Advisory Board and Editors Genomics

Vivek Anantharaman

Computational biology Staff Scientist, Aravind Group, at the Computational Biology Branch, National Center for Biotechnology Information, National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, Maryland). Research interest includes studying protein structure, function and sequence, evolution of domains and biological systems to glean information about the biology of organisms.

Maria Anisimova

Since 2014, senior research fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Applied Simulations of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). Editor of BMC Evol Biol and PLoS ONE. In 2012 edited a book in 2 volumes "Evolutionary Genomics: Statistical and computational methods".

Adam Auton

Assistant Professor of Computation Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY.

Ramy K Aziz

I am a professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Faculty of Pharmacy, Cairo University, Egypt. I am interested in microbiome research, pharmacomicrobiomics, evolution and emergence microbial pathogenesis and resistance, microbial and phage genomics, antibiotic resistance surveillance, adaptive laboratory evolution, metabolic reconstruction and pathway gap filling, and virulence gene discovery.

David A Baltrus

Assistant Professor interested in evolutionary microbiology and genomics

Anaïs Baudot

I'm a Systems Biologist with a background in Biology, Genetics and Bioinformatics. I hold a PhD from the Aix-Marseille University. After a Post-Doc in the CNIO (Madrid, Spain), I got a CNRS Researcher position in 2010. I'm working since then in the Marseille Institute of Mathematics (CNRS-AMU). I'm interested in -omics studies (interactomes), Networks (partitioning, boolean modelling), and questions related to human diseases, in particular complex diseases, cancers and comorbidities.

Joanne Berghout

Dr. Berghout received her PhD in Biochemistry from McGill University in Montreal, QC where she researched the genetics of complex traits and susceptibility to infectious disease in humans and mouse models. Following that, she spent three years as the Outreach Coordinator for the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database in Bar Harbor, ME. There, she trained researchers in genetics, genomics, data structures and data mining to answer biological questions, and worked closely with other members of the MGI group to develop and optimize the MGI resource. Now her research interests include genetics of all kinds, personalized medicine, big data, and scientific communication. She is currently pursuing projects in precision medicine for analysis of transcriptome data from patients with rare lung diseases (Sarcoidosis, Coccidiomycosis), and integrative network analysis of complex traits including Alzheimer's Disease. She is currently appointed at the University of Arizona's Center for Biomedical Informatics and Biostatistics (CB2) and The Center for Genetics and Genomic Medicine (TCG2M) in Tucson, AZ.

Dario Boffelli

Associate Scientist, Childrens' Hospital Oakland Research Institute. Visiting Scholar, University of California, Berkeley.

At CHORI, we use genomic strategies to investigate the role of genetic and epigenetic variation in the regulatory domain of the genome, with an interest in both human disease and evolution. The two main areas of interest of the lab are:The evolutionary biology and potential contribution to human disease of components of the epigenome. And, annotating the regulatory elements of the human genome using a combination of comparative analysis of sequenced vertebrate genomes and public epigenomic datasets.

Glen M Borchert

Dr. Glen Borchert holds joint appointments as an Assistant Professor in Biology and Pharmacology at the University of South Alabama. He originally received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Tennessee then completed a Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Iowa. Dr. Borchert’s research focuses largely on identifying novel genetic regulators and defining their roles in oncogenesis, microbiology and speciation. Since starting his laboratory at South Alabama in August 2012, Dr. Borchert has published dozens of papers in peer reviewed journals and had numerous grant applications funded including a highly prestigious NSF CAREER award (2014-2019).
