Professor Yanyi Huang received his BS (Chemistry) and ScD (Inorganic Chemistry) degrees from Peking University in 1997 and 2002, respectively. He then conducted his postdoc research at Caltech (Applied Physics, 2002-2005), and at Stanford (Bioengineering, 2005- 2006). He started his independent career at Peking University in 2006. He is PI of BIOPIC and ICG, Professor of Analytical Chemistry, and PI of Peking-Tsinghua Center for Life Sciences. Professor Huang has published over 150 papers. He has received National Natural Science Award, 2nd Rank, in 2003, the National Excellent Doctoral Thesis Award in 2004, the NSFC Award for Excellent Young Scholars in 2012, and the NSFC Award for Distinguished Young Scientist in 2015. He became Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry in 2014.
Huang group is working on technology development for integrative biology researches, especially the new methods for genomic sequencing and large scale microfluidics. We are interested in developing advanced technologies to facilitate genome sequencing and its applications. Huang lab has developed numerous key components, structures, functional modules, and fabrication methods to enhance the complexity and sophistication of experiments that can be performed on a microfluidic chip. The advantages of these micro-scale building blocks enable quantitatively more and qualitatively new measurements, including the single copy measurements, of complex biological systems.
These developments enable researchers to perform experiments which are impossible or impractical to execute with traditional bench top techniques, and to provide innovative solutions to compelling problems which will yield fundamental insights into important biological problems. Huang lab has also developed microfluidic circuits for more precise characterization of heterogeneous systems at the single-cell resolution using high-throughput sequencing technologies, allowing cells to be identified objectively without a priori knowledge. Recently, Huang group has developed a new strategy to perform super- high accuracy DNA sequencing with information redundancy. This technology, ECC sequencing, will further facilitate the researches that requires accuracy that cannot be offered by current methods.
