    Biography
      Dr. Chengsheng Zhu is a postdoctoral associate at Rutgers University. He received his B.S. in Biology from Fudan University, China, M.S. in Biology from Central Michigan University, and Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from Rutgers University. During his Ph.D. and postdoctoral training, Chengsheng has been focusing on building computational tools for functional annotation of microbial (meta)genomes and characterizing microbial functional signatures of different environment conditions.

    Abstract:

    Environment drives bacterial functional diversification. Molecular functional abilities of individual microbes and microbiomes from different envrionment conditions, such as temperature or salinity or even the sick or healthy individual gut, are clearly different. Understanding the functions encoded in the (meta)genomes of microbiomes is thus vital for mapping their environmental preferences. The high-throughput (meta)genomic sequencing, coupled with the growing computational resources, has unlocked new horizons. However, making sense of this deluge of data requires efficient and accurate analytical techniques. The attendees are expected to leave the presentation with understandings the concept of how environment impacts on micro[biom]e functions and computational tools that we built to facilitate the analysis.
