George Weinstock, PhD
Professor, Director of Microbial Genetics, The Jackson Laboratory
George is a Professor, Evnin Family Chair and Director of Microbial Genetics at The Jackson Laboratory. His laboratory leverages advanced metagenomics technologies to investigate human and other microbiomes, and their clinical impact. George is also a leader of infectious disease research - from the tracking of outbreaks to a detailed mechanistic understanding of infectious disease at the individual level and on a wider public health scale. All of these activities are Big Data projects requiring significant computational resources, so another focus of his laboratory is the development of computational tools both to manage Big Data and convert that data into knowledge.
