Welcome Dr. Ziyue Gao

Posted On: October 22, 2020

We are thrilled to announce that Ziyue Gao joined the Department of Genetics in May and is a member of the new Penn Center for Global Genomics and Health Equity. Ziyue received her PhD in Genetics, Genomics, and Systems Biology from the University of Chicago and postdoctoral training at Stanford University. Her lab is interested in using computational approaches to address questions in human genetics in an evolutionary context, such as the impacts of natural selection on the human genome and phenotypic traits, the mechanisms and consequences of mutation rate variation, and the genetic basis and evolution of human disease. You can learn more about her work on her faculty page here.
