About Jacek Majewski

Pr. Jacek Majewski received a PhD in Evolutionary Biology from Wesleyan University (1999), a Master in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (1991) and a Bachelor in Physics, also from Stanford (1990). He is Associate Professor, Department of Human Genetics, Faculty of Medicine at McGill University and holds the Canada Research Chair in Statistical Genetics.

Pr. Majewski’s research is based on genomics and bioinformatics analysis of high throughput data. The recent revolution in massively parallel DNA sequencing has opened new venues into numerous biomedical problems. Pr. Majewski’s group designs analytical methods and collaborates with basic researchers and clinicians to identify the factors underlying human genetic disorders. The approaches include RNA sequencing, exome sequencing, and whole genome sequencing, with specific applications to Mendelian disorders, complex traits, and cancer.
