Before joining the Venter Institute, she was the Manager of Sequencing Research and Development at Celera Genomics. She was instrumental in the development and implementation of Celera's high-throughput sequencing pipeline that allowed the human genome sequence to be completed in 14 months. In addition, she was responsible for implementing and managing a forensic resequencing pipeline at Celera. This pipeline was specifically set up to perform the mtDNA resequencing on the World Trade Center (WTC) victim and reference samples for the purpose of identifying the WTC victims.
Rogers received her B.S. at Chung-Shing University, Taiwan, and her M.S. in chemistry at The American University.
About the J. Craig Venter Institute
The JCVI is a not-for-profit research institute in Rockville, MD and La
Jolla, CA dedicated to the advancement of the science of genomics; the
understanding of its implications for society; and communication of those
results to the scientific community, the public, and policymakers. Founded
by J. Craig Venter, Ph.D., the JCVI is home to approximately 400 scientists
and staff with expertise in human and evolutionary biology, genetics,
bioinformatics/informatics, information technology, high-throughput DNA
sequencing, genomic and environmental policy research, and public education
in science and science policy. The legacy organizations of the JCVI are:
The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), The Center for the Advancement
of Genomics (TCAG), the Institute for Biological Energy Alternatives
(IBEA), the Joint Technology Center (JTC), and the J. Craig Venter Science
