Yixin Zhao, Ph.D.
Yixin is a postdoc in the lab who is interested in applying novel computational and experimental techniques, such as machine learning and PRO-seq, to study gene regulation, gene expression and intriguing evolutionary questions. Yixin completed his Ph.D. training under the supervision of Prof. Chung-I Wu at Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) where he focused on microRNA expression and function evolution using high-throughput sequencing data and molecular biology experiments. He also holds a B.S. in Biotechnology in SYSU. Yixin joined the Siepel lab in early 2018.
