Dr. Boxun Zhao joined the Lee laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow in August, 2018. He obtained his PhD in Genetics from Peking Union Medical College and Tsinghua University. He studied somatic retrotransposon insertions in neurological disorders through the development of novel experimental assays and bioinformatic sequencing analyses during his PhD studies. Welcome, Boxun (he goes by [Bo])!
Alice was invited to the Editorial Board of Mobile DNA. "Mobile DNA [Impact Factor 4.234] is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes articles providing novel insights into DNArearrangements in all organisms, ranging from transposition and other types of recombination mechanisms to patterns and processes of mobile element and host genome evolution. Mobile DNA is proud to be the flagship journal for... Read more about Invitation to join the Editorial Board of Mobile DNA
Alice presented her work on "Immune Signatures Correlate with L1 Retrotransposition in Gastrointestinal Cancers" at the Keystone Symposia: Mobile Genetic Elements and Genome Plasticity (http://www.keystonesymposia.org/18B7) in one of her favorite venues, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Jia starts her associate investigator position at BIOPIC/IGC, Peking University in China (Director: X. Sunney Xie). Wish you all the best of luck in your new position, Jia. We will miss you and your consideration and care for other lab members!
Welcome, August! August joined the lab as a postdoctoral research fellow. He received his PhD in Bioinformatics at Peking University in China and had a two-year postdoctoral training at Matthew Warman’s lab in Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston.
Welcome Kyu, who joined us as a junior bioinformatician ! He studied computer science at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. He is eager to learn bioinformatics and next-generation sequencing data analysis.
