Yang Hechuan

I obtained my Ph.D from a joint program by University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and Kunming Inistute of Zoology (KIZ),CAS in 2016. During my Ph.D, I focused on the domestication of dogs where I spent most my time at Beijing Institute of Genomics, CAS as a visiting student. After my Ph.D., I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Genome Institute of Singapore, A*STAR. For two and half years in Singapore, I shifted my research direction to tumor evolution and cancer genomics. Back to IoZ, I spend part of my time working on the evolution of bats. It seems that the objectives of my research changed often. Actually, all of my studies center around the use of population genetics to study the evolution of several model systems (natural species and cancer cells).
