Bill Young Greenwald, PhD.
Epigenetics & Genomics Specialist
Dr. Bill Young Greenwald started his career at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he obtained his B.S. in Computational and Systems Biology with a focus in bioinformatics. He then moved to the University of California, San Diego where he received his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology. During his time at UCSD, Bill was an Institute for Enigneering in medicine fellow, Ruth L. Kirschstein F31 NIH fellow, and ARCS fellow. His work during his Ph.D. focused on genetics and genomics through integrating large scale multi-omics data sets to interrogate the functionality of the non-coding genome and examine how functional non-coding variants exert their functions and affect human traits and disease.
Dr. Young Greenwald has extensive work creating bioinformatics workflows for the interrogation of a multitude of sequencing datatypes, including DNA, RNA, ChIP, ATAC, HiC, and single cell. He has utilized this information to make inferences into multiple diseases, basic biological phenomenon, and meta-genomics, and has published in high impact factor journals including Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, Cell Reports, The American Journal of Human Genetics, and Genetics
