Dr. Hyun-Hwan Jeong is an assistant professor of research at the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics and an assistant director of Genomic Medicine in the Center for Precision Health. His current research focuses on developing and applying algorithms, statistical modeling, and machine learning techniques to decode large-scale omics data, specifically single-cell omics data.
Dr. Hyun-Hwan Jeong earned his Ph.D. in computer science at Ajou University, South Korea. During his Ph.D., He developed a MINA, a computational algorithm for integrative network analysis for gene-gene interactions associated with clinical outcome across multiple genomic profiles. After his Ph.D., Dr. Hyun-Hwan Jeong was a postdoctoral associate at Baylor College of Medicine. He mainly focused on designing computational algorithms to utilize the CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technique and developed computational tools such as CRISPR cloud, CRISPR Beta Binomial, and TraceQC. He also developed SalmonTE to data-mine big data generated by next-generation sequencing. SalmonTE could identify a potential neurodegeneration mechanism of Alzheimer's disease patients.
