J. Craig Venter Institute Names Robert Friedman, Ph.D., Deputy Director of West Coast Facility
Date:6/26/2008

on the first published diploid genome sequence of a human, that of J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., in 2007 (PLoS Biology 5, e254). He and his team will continue to lead studies of functional characterization of DNA variants within the human genome. This team also has plans to sequence the complete diploid genomes of up to 10,000 people over the next 10 years. Dr. Levy has an ongoing interest in characterizing and refining the structure and function of the genome and epigenome in human populations. In addition to his work on the diploid human genome, Dr. Levy also provides contract-based gene resequencing services for the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and has worked with over ten different research groups over the last three years providing high throughput discovery of DNA variants on clinical samples for disease association studies.

Prior to joining JCVI in 2002, Dr Levy worked at Celera Genomics and was involved in developing computational tools for gene discovery and functional annotation in the Drosophila and the first human genome sequences. Dr. Levy received a B.Sc. in Molecular Biophysics at the University of Leeds, UK, and his Ph.D. in cell and computational biology at the University of Bristol, UK. He also received a two-year NATO/SERC postdoctoral fellowship studying structural and biochemical changes in plant cell walls at the Ecole Normale Superieure, France.

Yu-Hui Rogers, Vice President of Core Technology Development and Services

A recognized leader in the field of designing and deploying large-scale DNA sequencing projects and pipelines, Rogers has been instrumental in developing and growing the high-throughput DNA sequencing facility at the JCVI. This team has led the sequencing of more than 3,000 viral, 450 prokaryotic, and 50 eukaryotic genomes including the samples from the JCVI's Global Ocean Sampling Expedition, the first complete diploid genome, and many other key genomes for researchers worldwide.
