We are pleased and excited to have Dr Han Ming Gan coming onboard as the inaugural Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) of GENESEQ SDN BHD (1306003W) effective March 1,2020.
Dr Gan will bring in nearly a decade of extensive expertise in next-generation sequencing, microbiology, genomic and computational biology from industry and academia. With a strong background in Illumina sequencing technology owing to his 3-year industry experience post-PhD as an Application Scientist in Science Vision Sdn Bhd, he has set up and operated two NGS labs with minimal technical support from Illumina during his post-docs in Monash University Malaysia & Deakin University Australia.
Being self-taught in computational biology and more recently Oxford Nanopore sequencing, Dr Gan has analyzed & published more than 100 microbial genomes and several eukaryotic genomes ranging from Asian Arowana to the Australian crayfish yabby. His involvement in several genomic projects at the local and international levels is evidenced by his track record.
Dr Gan’s industry-academia background, can-do attitude and passion will be valuable as he drives the NGS and data analysis portfolios of GENESEQ SDN BHD to service and engage academia and industry.
