Dr. Jianjun Hu

Principal Investigator Tel:803-777-7304
Dr. Hu is interested in integrative functional genomics and especially integrative analysis of microarray data, DNA and protein motif discovery, gene expression regulation. He got his Ph.D. in Computer Science in the area of machine learning and particularly evolutionary computation at the Genetic Algorithm Research and Application Group (GARAGe) of Michigan State University. He is also interested in sustainable evolutionary algorithms and computationaldesign synthesis. He has worked on the DNA motif discovery problem as Postdoc at Kihara Bioinformatics Lab, Purdue University and microarray analysis at the Computational Molecular Biology Division at the University of Southern California (another USC)
