The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
Dr. Xiaofeng Zheng had extensive training in both biology and statistical bioinformatics. She received her B.S. in Biological Science and M.S. in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from Nanjing University (China), and Ph.D. in Biomathematics and Biostatistics from University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Her PhD thesis (advisor Dr. Shoudan Liang) is about development of novel methods to minimize the impact of sequencing errors in the next-generation sequencing data analysis. She developed a sequencing error correction software MTM, and two SNP calling softwares. After obtaining her PhD degree, she joined Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center as a research statistical analyst. She is currently working on establishing pipelines for the next-generation sequencing data analysis and providing bioinformatics support for clinicians from various departments of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
Dr. Xiaofeng Zheng’s research interests include the analysis of next-generation sequencing data and array data, integration of cancer genomics data, and development of novel pipelines and softwares for the next-generation sequencing data analysis.
