Gang Fang, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Genomics Department at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The Fang lab pioneered the fast growing field of bacterial epigenomics (Nature Biotechnology, 2012), and developed the foundational methods that enabled the effective use of Single Molecule Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing technology for direct detection of DNA modifications (Genome Research, 2013; PLoS Computational Biology, 2013; Nature Communications, 2015; Nature Reviews Genetics, 2019). Recently, his lab pioneered the use of DNA methylation as natural epigenetic barcodes for high resolution microbiome analysis and associating mobile genetic elements to their hosts directly in microbiome (Nature Biotechnology, 2018). Dr. Fang received his PhD degree in University of Minnesota, his MS degree in University at Buffalo, and his BS degree in Fudan University. Dr. Fang received multiple awards including: Best Network Model Award, Sage Congress (2010), Walter Barnes Lang Fellowship (2011), Best Dissertation Award at University of Minnesota (2013), Nash Family Research Scholar, Friedman Brain Institute (2016), Irma T. Hirschl / Monique Weill-Caulier Trust Research Award (2018).
