Following postdoctoral training and several years of work in the pharmaceutical industry, Dr. Grigoriev joined the DOE Joint Genome Institute in 2003 to participate in human genome annotation and lead annotation of over 100 diverse eukaryotic genomes from protists to plants. In 2009, he started the Fungal Genomics program to scale up sequencing and analysis of diverse fungi for related to DOE science and applications. Dr. Grigoriev organized over 30 genomics workshops and engaged over 2000 researchers around the world in genome projects, which resulted in over 50 high-profile publications. In the same vein, he and his team are working to organize research labs around large-scale, most-needed genomics projects to develop genetic blueprints for diverse algae to enable comparative and functional algal genomics.
