Zhenyu Xu

Biography

Dr. Zhenyu Xu is a genome scientist with a background in molecular and computational biology. He holds a Master’s degree from Cambridge University in computational biology, and obtained his PhD at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) where he focused on the transcriptome landscape of yeast. His PhD work systematically characterized the non-coding transcripts in yeast which lead to the unveiling that in a majority of cases, transcriptions are bidirectional. Dr. Xu is among the most experienced bioinformaticians worldwide in clinical NGS data analysis. He joined SOPHiA GENETICS in 2012 and is the leader of the technology team who developed SOPHiA – the universal technology for Data-Driven Medicine. The AI powers SOPHiA DDM®, an advanced SaaS analytics platform for clinical genomics, recognized and widely used in hundreds of hospitals across the world.
