Remarks / more information:

Shendure _2Jay Shendure, University of Washington, Associate Professor, Genome Sciences, University of Washington. His 2005 PhD included one of the first successful demonstrations of massively parallel or next generation DNA sequencing. His research group in Seattle has made significant contributions to technologies including exome sequencing and its application to identify the basis of Mendelian disorders and autism spectrum disorders; haplotype-resolved genome sequencing; non-invasive, fetal genome sequencing; massively parallel functional analysis of cis-regulatory elements; and "dialout PCR". He is the recipient of the 2006 TR35 Young Innovator Award from MIT Technology Review and the 2012 Curt Stern Award from the American Society of Human Genetics.
