Professor, Department of Systems Biology
Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China
Dr. Yu Xue is a professor at the Department of Systems Biology of College of Life Science and Technology of Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He received his B.S. in Polymer Materials and Technology in 2002 and B.E. in Computer Science and Technology in 2003 from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). He completed his Ph.D. training in Cell Biology and Bioinformatics in USTC (2002-2006). During the past several years, Dr. Xue has published extensively on computational studies of post-translational modifications (PTMs), including developing novel GPS (Group-based Prediction System) series algorithms, studying several new PTMs (eg., epigenetic modifications), constructing easy-to-use softwares and databases, and proteome-wide analysis of PTMs substrates, etc. His group is currently combining systems biology, bioinformatics, and molecular & cellular biology approaches to study genetic variations that potentially influence protein modification status.
