Welcome to Yue Lab at Penn State

About the PI: Dr. Yue is a tenure-track assistant professor in the Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Penn State School of Medicine. He serves as the director of Bioinformatics division for the Penn State Institute for Personalized Medicine (IPM). He has been an active member of several NIH funded consortia, including the ENCODE, Roadmap/Epigenomics, and 4D Nucleome projects.

        The main research area for Dr. Yue's group is cancer epigenomics and 3D genome organization. Before joining Penn State, Dr. Yue received his postdoctoral training in Dr. Bing Ren's laboratory at UCSD School of Medicine. Currently, he is a graduate advisor in the BMS program and the Genomics and Bioinformatics Program.

About the lab: Our lab was established in Oct. 2013 and we have both web lab and dry lab components. Right now, we have one Principal Investigator, one assistant professor, two postdoc fellows, five graduate students and one undergraduate student. People in the lab come from both biology and computer science background.
