Yang Liu, Ph.D.

Associate Research Scientist

I am interested in biomedical data mining, long-read sequencing data analysis, and epigenetic pattern recognition of cancer.

I was admitted to Xi'an Jiaotong University at the age of 15. And I received my B. S., and Ph.D. degrees from Xi'an Jiaotong University, China in 2004, and 2010, respectively. Before I worked in Blekinge Institute of Technology, Sweden and Zhengzhou University, China. I have published lots of journal and conference papers in the areas of machine learning, E-Health system and DNA computing.

At JAX, I engaged in multi-omic data analysis, including epigenetic pattern mining and algorithm development, and long-read DNA methylation detection research.
