NASA Ames Research Center
Viktor Stolc is the director of the NASA Ames Genome Research Facility (Mountain View, CA), where he has pioneered the development of large-scale functional genomics projects, including high resolution tiling arrays for the entire human genome and various model organisms. Prior to joining NASA in 2000, Stolc worked as a Damon Runyon Cancer Research post-doctoral fellow at Stanford University Genome Technology Center (Palo Alto, CA), where he co-invented a method for direct multiplex characterization of genomic DNA. Dr. Stolc received his doctoral degree from Yale University School of Medicine, Department of Cell Biology (New Haven, CT), where he identified and characterized nuclear RNase P protein components from humans and yeast.
Characterization of dynamic sequence variations caused by metabolic oxidation, and identification of the physical basis for universal feedback mechanism between heredity and the environment.
