Dr. Zhijie Jiang received his PhD in Evolutionary Biology from Louisiana State University in 2006, and then spent one year working on genome annotation projects at Scripps, Florida (The Scripps Research Institute). His main projects at CCS can be divided into two categories: The first is genome assembling using next generation sequencing (NGS) data and genome annotation, his expertise includes both prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes, run on two different NGS platforms; the second focus is gene expression analysis, working with microarray data as well as NGS data. This latter focus allows him to maintain an active interest in gene regulatory networks and promoter prediction.

Dr. Jiang is working in collaboration with the (John P.) Hussman Institute for Human Genomics (pictured below), the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and UM’s Department of Biology.
