Jean-Christophe Grenier – Bioinformatician

Jean-Christophe Grenier (JC) has joined the OMICS group in July 2018 after working during 7 years at Sainte-Justine hospital in Luis Barreiro and Philip Awadalla laboratories. He’s aiming to help Dr. Hussin to coordinate the main projects running in the laboratory and helping with all the possible hardware issues that could come up. Understanding species evolution and understand human history is some of his favorite topics. JC is providing support for all kinds of bioinformatics projects using omics technologies, phylogenomics and his future goals will be to use other methods such as AI to analyze biological and medical data.
