Dr. Biju Issac earned his Masters and Bachelors of Science degree from Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, India. He later received his PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India in 2005. Since then, he has gained extensive experience in bioinformatics analysis of Microarrays and Next-Generation sequencing analysis.
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.
Hemalatha Raju is a PhD student in Human Genetics and Genomics at the University of Miami. She received her BS in Physics and a master in Biophysics from the University of Chennai, India.
Camilo gained two B.S. degrees in Biology and in Computer Science from Florida International University, and is currently enrolled in a Master’s program in Bioinformatics at FIU. He is a senior analyst for gene expression analysis from microarray datasets. He has experience with several microarray platforms and has worked with data from different species. His expertise includes performing differential expression analyses of regulated genes using various analysis algorithms, along with pathways analysis and gene-set enrichment analysis. Camilo is also a software architect and is the lead developer for the iBIS portal and other bioinformatics tools.
