BioNanomatrix Appoints Genomic Research Experts Charles Lee and David L. Barker as Advisers

y and at Harvard Medical School. He has authored over 100 publications in leading scientific journals and is an associate editor for the American Journal of Human Genetics. Dr. Lee serves on numerous committees -- he is the chair of the American Society of Human Genetics Program Committee, founding principal investigator of the Genomic Structural Variation Consortium and co-chair of the Structural Genomic Variation Analysis group for the 1000 Genomes Project, an ambitious consortium that is sequencing the genomes of as many as two thousand people from around the world to create the most detailed and medically useful picture to date of human genomic variation (www.1000genomes.org).

"The more we learn about the human genome, the greater our appreciation of the key role that structural variation plays in disease and health," said Dr. Lee. "The whole genome imaging and analysis platform being developed by BioNanomatrix is uniquely well-suited to identifying important structural variations in the genome and to producing high resolution maps of these variations. This technology has the potential to help accelerate genomic research, and I look forward to working with BioNanomatrix to ensure that it is optimally useful to researchers."

Dr. Lee's laboratory was one of two groups to discover the widespread presence of structural variation (in the form of copy number variants, or CNVs) in the genome, and the Genomic Structural Variation Consortium that he helped to establish subsequently published a first generation CNV map for the human genome. Dr. Lee has received many awards, including the Inaugural Team Award from the American Association for Cancer Research in 2007 for "the landmark discovery of recurrent gene fusions in prostate cancer." In the following year, he became the youngest-ever recipient of the Ho-Am Prize in Medicine,
