Researcher biography

Sohye Yoon joined the Genome Innovation Hub in 2018 after 7 years at the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre (SFIRC) at University of Aberdeen, UK. At the SFIRC, she attained comprehensive knowledge in immunology and utilised a wide variety of methods in the areas of molecular biology, Antibody engineering and cell biology to perform the necessary assays for her PhD and 2 post-doctoral projects. In addition to a strong record of collaboration with industries/academic researchers, she also supervised master/PhD student research projects during this time.

Since coming to the GIH, she has expanded her research capabilities into the genomics area with her strong competence in molecular biology. Sohye contributed to the development several SOPs and protocols and published literature in peer-revied journals. Her research interests also include spatial multi-omics technologies and long-read sequencing.
