Editorial Board Member - JIID
Dr. Bin Zhou is a Staff Scientist at the J. Craig Venter Institute. His researches include rapid generation of viruses and vaccine seeds using synthetic genomics technology, design and evaluation of novel live attenuated influenza vaccines, development of techniques for virus genomic sequencing and reverse genetics, and discovery and characterization of pathogenic determinants of avian and human influenza viruses. The influenza virus genomic amplification technology developed by Dr. Zhou has been used widely by many labs throughout the world, and consequently the majority of the recently deposited influenza genome sequences in GenBank were generated by using this technology for genomic amplification. Dr. Zhou received his bachelor's degree in Biochemistry at Nanjing University in China. He received his doctoral degree in Biomedical Sciences studying virology at the State University of New York at Albany and at the Wadsworth Center of New York State Department of Health.
