Biographical Information:

Dr. John Quackenbush is an Investigator, Mammalian Genomics and Bioinformatics at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR), Rockville, Maryland.  TIGR is a not-for-profit research institute whose primary research interests are in structural, functional and comparative analysis of genomes and gene products from a wide variety of organisms including viruses, eubacteria (both pathogens and non-pathogens, archaea (the so-called third domain of life), and eukaryotes (plants, animals, fungi and protists such as the malarial parasite).  Dr. Quackenbush was previously an Associate Investigator, Mammalian Genomics and Bioinformatics at TIGR (January 1998 – February 2002) and an Assistant Investigator, Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics at TIGR (January 1997 - December 1997). 

Prior to joining TIGR, Dr. Quackenbush was a Research Associate, Genomics and Bioinformatics at the Stanford Human Genome Center, Palo Alto, California (1994 - 1996). 

Dr. Quackenbush was previously a Staff Scientist at The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Department of Molecular Genetics and Genomics 1992 - 1994).  He did his post-doctoral training in the Department of Experimental Particle Physics at University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA), after receiving his Ph.D. in Theoretical Particle Physics from UCLA in 1990.  Dr. Quackenbush received a B.S. degree in Physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1983 and a M.S. degree in Physics from UCLA in 1984.

Dr. Quackenbush is also an Associate Professor of Biocehmistry at The George Washington University, Washington, DC (2002), as well as an Adjunct Professor of Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland (1998-2002).
