The Bioinformatics Graduate Program is proud to announce that both Raymond Cavalcante, Jr. and Zhengting Zou are recipients of the prestigious 2016-2017 Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship. Only 72 graduates students in total receive this award, intended for a Ph.D. student’s final year of study. Raymond’s research focuses on epigenomics and metabolomics data. He has, among other things, developed Broad-Enrich to determine biological pathways that are affected by histone modifications, which play important roles in gene regulation. Zhengting’s work centers on evolutionary genomics and phylogenetics. Currently, he investigates genome-wide patterns of molecular sequence convergence and their underlying mechanisms.
