Faculty Profile: Jimmie Ye, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Institute for Human Genetics, UCSF

The Ye lab is interested in how the interaction between genetics and environment affect human variation at the level of molecular phenotypes. To study these interactions, the lab couples high-throughput sequencing approaches that measure cellular response  under environmental challenges with population genetics where such measurements are collected and analyzed across large patient cohorts. The lab develops novel experimental approaches that enable the large-scale collection of functional genomic data en-masse and computational approaches that translate the data into novel biological insights. This approach is used to initially study primary human immune cells in both healthy and diseased patients to understand host pathogen interactions and its role in autoimmunity.
