Professor: Philipp Khaitovich
Yun-Mei received her doctorate from Kunming Institute of Zoology, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in June 2018. Her postgraduate study focused on construction of long intergenic non-coding RNA and RNA editing repertoires in chicken, analyses of their tissue features, function, and roles during chicken domestication, as well as investigation of genetic mechanisms underlying chicken rumpless trait, using large-scale transcriptome and genome sequencing data.
At Skoltech, Yun-Mei will concentrate on studying metabolic mechanisms of human brain function and disease through large-scale data of mass spectrometry, genome and transcriptome.
