Areas of Interest
Dr. de Wet received a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of California, San Diego. He headed a molecular biology lab at Pfizer Inc in Groton, CT that initially worked on cloning and expressing mammalian genes and later specialized in central nervous system molecular biology. In 1998, Dr. de Wet moved to the bioinformatics group at Pfizer and worked on projects to identify genes from genome and EST sequence data. In 2003, he moved to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor where he currently designs and teaches bioinformatics courses. Dr. de Wet is interested in the analysis of next generation sequencing data, especially in ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq projects.
