Peter Markstein received his SB and SM degrees in Mathematics from M.I.T., and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from N.Y.U. Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.At IBM, he was active in computer architecture, optimizing compilers, and floating point arithmetic.He was a member of the "801 Project", one of the earliest RISC computer projects.This work led to the RS/6000 family of computers, where Dr. Markstein's work influenced the RS/6000 architecture and resulted in the XL family of optimizing compilers.
Dr. Markstein has been a member of HP Labs since 1992.He was an active participant in the Precision Architecture Wide Word project, which ultimately became the Itanium computer.His contributions to Itanium influenced its floating point architecture, compiler development, and elementary function library.His book, "IA-64 and Elementary Functions: Speed and Precision", was one of the earliest books published about Itanium.He led the development of HP's first Java Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler.
Since 2001, Dr. Markstein's research efforts have been directed towards Bioinformatics.He has been involved in developing software to scan genomes for potential enhancers, as well as identifying potential binding motifs from sets of gene regulatory regions.The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of gene regulation.
Dr. Markstein is a member of the IEEE-754R Committee, which is developing a revised floating point arithmetic standard.In Bioinformatics, he has been Program Chair for the 2002 IEEE Computer Society Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2002), as well as Program Co-Chair for CSB2003, CSB2004, and CSB2005.He is Program Co-Chair of the Life Sciences Society Computational Systems Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2006).He has also served as guest editor for four issues of the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
