Eliot Bush

Eliot Bush, PhD, uses computational methods to study evolution, covering a range of topics from sequence analysis to modeling. A current focus is in the area of microbial genome evolution. Bush and his students have developed a computational approach to reconstructing the history of genomic island insertions in clades of closely related microbes (xenoGI). They […]

Jessica Wu

Yi-Chieh (Jessica) Wu, PhD, specializes in applying computational and mathematical techniques to biological problems. Currently, she develops evolutionary models and algorithms for reconstructing gene histories across multiple species. Such models help scientists understand differences within and across species, particularly in how genes form and function. Wu completed her PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science […]
