Jie “Jenny” Wu
Jie (Jenny) Wu, Ph.D., is a Project Scientist in the Department of Biological Chemistry and the UCI Genomics High Throughput Facility. She has a broad background in computational biology, with specific training and expertise in key research areas such as sequence analysis, network analysis, statistical analysis and software development. As a postdoctoral researcher at Boston University, she carried out whole genome sequence data analysis to automatically annotate newly sequenced genomes and developed software for visualization and exploration of functional association networks. At Delta Search Labs, she focused on integrating heterogeneous data types such as microarray data, genomics data, proteomics and metabolomics data from toxicological treatments, using pathway and network analysis with GeneGO metacore and IPA. As a Sr. Scientist at CODA and Verdezyne, she designed pipelines for whole genome sequencing data analysis to optimize protein expression using MATLAB, R and Perl. At UC Irvine, she has performed next generation sequencing data analysis including exome-sequencing, WGS and RNA-seq data, pathway and network analysis with WGCNA and IPA. Working with huge data sets on a daily basis, she has experience with Unix environment scripting, high performance computing and parallel programing. She is also familiar with popular NGS tools such as Bowtie, Samtools, IGV etc.
