Yizhou Wang completed his Phd in the Plant Biology graduate program working on small RNAs and transcriptional silencing in Neurospora especially focusing on transposable elements, meiotic silencing, and discovery of novel smallRNA generating loci.
In 2015 he started a position as a Bioinformatics specialist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA
