Jerzy Kulski

Dr. Jerzy K. Kulski, biochemist and geneticist, received his PhD from the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 1979 for his research on human lactation. He completed two post-doctoral fellowships in the USA (1980-1984), before returning to UWA to investigate the association between human papillomaviruses and uterine cervical cancer. After 1996 he held a number of teaching and research positions including Visiting Professor at Tokai University School of Medicine (TUSOM) in Japan to study the genomics and diseases of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Since 2007, he has continued his studies on MHC genotyping by next generation sequencing as an adjunct at UWA in collaboration with researchers at TUSOM. He has more than 180 scientific publications and has authored a crime novel entitled “China Heist.”

Next generation sequencing (NGS) has surpassed the traditional Sanger sequencing method to become the main choice for large-scale, genome-wide sequencing studies with ultra-high-throughput production and a huge reduction in costs. The NGS technologies have had enormous impact on the studies of structural and functional genomics in all the life sciences. In this book, Next Generation Sequencing Advances, Applications and Challenges, the sixteen chapters written by experts cover various aspects of NGS including genomics, transcriptomics and methylomics, the sequencing platforms, and the bioinformatics challenges in processing and analysing huge amounts of sequencing data. Following an overview of the evolution of NGS in the brave new world of omics, the book examines the advances and challenges of NGS applications in basic and applied research on microorganisms, agricultural plants and humans. This book is of value to all who are interested in DNA sequencing and bioinformatics across all fields of the life sciences.
