Bachelor of Engineering (Bioinformatics)
Doctor of Philosophy (Water and Environmental Microbiology)
My Current Research Interests:
1. Microbiome in health and diseases
2. Antimicrobial resistance
4. Microbiome bioinformatics
Dr. Jiang leads the bioinformatics unit at the MRC and has been involved in an extensive number of projects for the human microbiome and diseases including liver cancer, colon cancer, IBD, schizophrenia et. al. He is interested in developing bioinformatics algorithms and software to analyze next/third generation sequencing data for multi-omics data (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and metabolomics). Another interest of Dr. Jiang is antimicrobial resistance. He is interested in developing methods to combat the ever-increasing issue of antimicrobial resistance from the medical application.
Dr Jiang completed his PhD in The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In his PhD study, he applied large-scale metagenomics sequencing to understand the activated sludge microbial ecology in a spatial and temporal dimension. He developed ARGs-OAP to obtain the quantitative profiling of resistome for multiple shotgun metagenomics data, which is widely used in the AMR area.
