Zhenyu Zhang received his BA in Biochemistry and MS in Genetics at the Fudan University in China, and MS in Statistics and PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Texas at Austin.  He has a wide variety of research experience in both statistical and experimental analysis of genetics, genomics, epigenetics, and pharmacogenomics.  As a PhD student in David Stein’s lab, he studied embryonic pattern formation in Drosophila and yeast gene evolution rate.  As a postdoctoral scholar in Bruce Lahn’s lab and Wei Du’s lab at the University of Chicago, he studied gene expression, DNA methylation and chromosome position in mammalian cells with RNA-seq and DNA deep sequencing, and gene-drug interaction with NCI60 and COSMIC mutation and drug-sensitivity data.  Zhenyu currently works as a bioinformatician in Robert Grossman’s lab at the Center for Data Intensive Science, specializing in analyzing deep sequencing and varies DNA array data.
