Yingying obtained her PhD degree from Nanjing University, College of Life Science, and majored in Biology (2018-2021). During her doctoral study, she mainly focused on the mechanism of genomic hypermutation during sexual reproduction of Neurospora crassa using whole genome sequencing coupled with biochemical investigation. In July 2021, Yingying joined the Guomics team as a postdoctoral researcher for proteomic big data research.
