Robert H. Gross
Robert H. Gross received his Bachelor of Engineering Sciences and Masters of Biomedical Engineering degrees from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, NY, USA). He received his Ph.D. degree in biophysics from the Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Md, USA) and completed his Postdoctoral Fellowship in molecular biology in the Laboratory of Ru Chih Huang in the Biology Department at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Gross is currently an Associate Professor of biology at the Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH, USA) where he is also the Director of the Center for Biological and Biomedical Computing. In 1998, he was awarded a Career Achievement Award from the Biotechnology Software and Internet Journal for breakthroughs in molecular biology computing. Dr. Gross is also the President and Cofounder of Textco BioSoftware, Inc. and was the Lead Designer for the Gene Construction Kit and Gene Inspector applications. His research focus is in understanding gene regulation. He originally approached this through the study of transcription in Drosophila and now through the development of computational tools for sequence and data analysis. Dr. Gross’ laboratory developed the SCOPE algorithm for finding potential regulatory signals in DNA, one of the most accurate motif finders available.
