Biography

Anil Jegga, DVM, MRes, is a biological and medically-oriented computational biologist. He has led bioinformatics analysis and database development initiatives and played a critical role in a variety of successful projects and consortia focusing on genetic and genomic biology of developmental systems, human disease and mouse disease models. His work focuses on the elucidation of gene regulatory networks and the interaction between genotype and phenotype using a variety of bioinformatics approaches. He has extensive experience in transcription factor and micro-RNA based gene regulatory mechanisms, gene polymorphism functional analysis, candidate disease gene identification and prioritization. To aid in the diffusion of genomics into biomedical research and education, Dr. Jegga works with Bruce Aronow, PhD, and their research lab has developed several approaches that integrate bioinformatics with clinical informatics. His current interests include elucidating the p53 tumor suppressor network. In collaboration with scientists at National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Dr. Jegga is exploring the evolution of p53 targets and recently reported the unexpected finding that rodents lack some of the evolution-based safeguards in p53 function as humans. Collaborating with researchers from National Institute for Cancer Research, Italy, he is exploring the microRNA-based regulatory mechanisms of the p53 master regulatory network and impact of sequence variations on it.
