2012 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Home Department: undeclared
Supported by: Bio-X
Mentor: Anne Brunet, Associate Professor of Genetics

Yifei is a rising sophomore from Singapore. A prospective biomedical computation major, Yifei is interested in the applications of computational tools to solving problems in biology. This summer, he is working in the Brunet lab, where he will study the link between metabolism and epigenetics in longevity. He will be working with the model organism C. elegans and looks forward to learning a variety of wet-lab and in silico techniques. After his undergraduate career, Yifei hopes to pursue a PhD and work in the field of biomedical sciences.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 27, 2012:
