Dr. Yilei Fu
PhD student from September 2019 through January 2024

Dr. Fu is currently a postdoctoral scientist in the Sedlazeck lab at BCM HGSC. Dr. Fu received his Ph.D. from Rice University in December 2023. Previously, Yilei (4th year PhD student) obtained B.E. degrees in Computer Science and Technology from Harbin Institute of Technology, China. During his undergraduate procedure, he receive National People’s Scholorship for 3 times. In the meantime, he also worked on detecting SV(structure variation) on human genomes using third generation sequencing data. His research interest can be briefly discribed as exploring gene-carried information using third/next generation sequencing data.
