Prof. Myers is among the pioneers of modern Bioinformatics. He was one of the founding fathers of NCBI's BLAST algorithm for homology search, perhaps the most popular bioinformatics tool and among the most cited papers in scientific literature. He played a seminal role in several landmark sequencing projects, including the human, mouse, and fruit fly genome projects.

More recently, Prof. Myers has led a research program of computational microscopy image analysis, tackling questions in cell biology and system biology, development, neuroscience, and behavior. The program's ambitious goal is the construction of an ultra-fast, multi-photon microscope for imaging a mouse brain in high resolution in less than a week.

Prof. Myers is noted for his outstanding vision. His drive behind shotgun sequencing changed the course of the human genome project, and so does his current approach towards computational microscopy. Prof. Myers is the recipient of several prestigious awards such as the IEEE 3rd Millennium Achievement Award in 2000 and the ACM Kanellakis Prize in 2002. He was voted the most influential in bioinformatics in 2001 by Genome Technology Magazine and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2003. He served in leadership positions at the University of Arizona, Celera Genomics, UC Berkeley, HHMI Janelia Farm, and Max Planck Institute.
