Paul Hartley


Paul Hartley is a molecular biologist with expertise in genomics, computational biology and technologies such as next-generation sequencing that produce large datasets. Hartley most recently was a principal scientist directing a team developing a sample preparation workflow with Roche Sequencing Solutions in San Jose, California. Prior to this, he joined Dovetail Genomics as one of its first employees and contributed towards the development of technology for genome assembly. Hartley earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from Emory University in Atlanta and his Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of California, San Francisco where he was also a postdoctoral fellow. One of his research interests is the development of molecular biology tools and processes that allow biological questions to be investigated with next-generation sequencing technologies.


Ph.D., Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of California, San Francisco, 2009
B.S., Biology, Emory University, 2002
