Julie Yang, PhD

Julie Yang is a Computational biologist in the Tsui Lab. She is interested in computational analysis detecting copy number variations and mutations from sequencing cfDNA. She is working to analyze copy number variations from shallow whole genome sequencing and predicting tumor fraction from the copy number profile of patient samples. She is also very interested in analyzing methylation and RNA-Seq from cfDNA. She is excited to be developing computational algorithms applied to cfDNA that can translate to tools for molecular diagnostics.
