Yong Kyu studied Developmental Genetics at prestigious Seoul National University and graduated with a Masters in Science. Prior to joining the Lieber Institute, Yong Kyu worked with various single-cell application methods such as Drop-Seq, DroNc-Seq, microfluidic systems (Fludigm C1) and LCM at the Johns Hopkins University. At LIBD, He continues to work on optimization and high-throughput methods of single cells from myriad sample sources including frozen brain tissue. He is currently working on sample extraction from frozen tissues for snRNA-Seq for LCM, snATAC-Seq, and snBisulfite-Seq. He is also interested in FISSEQ for spatial gene expression.
