Alexander Wait Zaranek


I am a founder and the Director of Informatics at the Harvard Personal Genome Project which provides a transparent and public resource of integrated genomes, phenomes, cell-lines and other biological samples. I work on open technologies that are part of the revolution that reduced human DNA sequencing costs by a million-fold since the completion of the Human Genome Project. A current research focus is the development of clinical-quality applications for processing massive data sets spanning millions of individuals across collaborating organizations, eventually encompassing exabytes of data. My contributions have led to highly cited publications in Science, Nature, the Lancet and other leading scientific journals. I am also a founder and shareholder of Curoverse where I am the Chief Scientist.
