General Field: Bioinformatics

Case Summary:

A Bioinformatician from India who has been working persistently in the field of Bioinformatics contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for filing his EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Despite receiving a Request for Evidence (RFE) during the process, our client’s case was granted approval by the USCIS within a year due to the diligent work of our legal team in drafting a strong response.

With a Ph.D. in Genome Science & Technology, our client certainly has the skill set needed to advance the field of Bioinformatics. His research focuses on the application of various bioinformatics methods in microbial genomics, including developing a hybrid genome assembly pipeline and elucidating the value and sequences of important microorganisms. Our client’s unique research and experience eventually led to at least 35 peer-reviewed journal articles with a total of 428 citations at the time of filing. In addition, our client has reviewed 35 articles and 1 book proposal for prestigious journals, an extremely high record compared to that of others in the same field.

Apart from this, our client’s research also addresses some of the most pressing issues in understanding certain microbial genomes and systems, which makes our client crucial to the United States and his contributions irreplaceable in the nationally imperative field of Bioinformatics. To support our argument, we encouraged our client to contact experts of the same field for recommendation letters. Here is how one of the recommenders described our client and his research: “better understandings of plant-microbe interactions have fundamental value for application in indigenous or engineered systems, offering novel avenues for effective and economical remediation techniques. In this way, {our Client} investigations have illuminated several paths for understanding the plant–microbe interface at diverse spatial and temporal scales, a grand challenge in biological and environmental research.”

Although our client meets the credentials for EB1A, it is important to make sure that he stands out from the huge amount of applications the USCIS received. With our rigorous methods of customizing our client’s petition and years of experience, we were able to build a convincing and strong petition for our client. Although USCIS issued an RFE, our team successfully tackled it with all the needed documents in an efficient manner. Our client also chose to work with us on his and his wife’s I-485 applications. As he waits for the decision on their I-485s, we thank him for choosing us to represent his case and wish him the best in his future career.
