Dr Pengyi Yang: Trans-regulatory characterisation of embryonic stem cells
Location:Children's Medical Research Institute Seminar Room
Dr Pengyi Yang, DECRA Fellow and Senior Lecturer, Charles Perkins Centre, University of Sydney
Seminar Title: TBD
Host: Patrick Tam
Pengyi Yang received his PhD in Bioinformatics at the University of Sydney in 2012. He subsequently undertook an interdisciplinary Research Fellowship in Systems Biology at the National Institutes of Health, USA. He returned to Australia on a University of Sydney Postdoctoral Fellowship in late 2015 and started his research group in 2017.
As a systems biologist cross-trained in computational science and biology, Pengyi combines machine learning and statistical methods to model trans-regulatory networks that cut across cell signalling, epigenomics and transcriptional regulations. His research contribute to (1) the development of computational methods stimulated by the pursuit of a deep understanding in cell systems; and (2) the advancement of knowledge in cell systems and diseases through innovative application of computational models.
