Eric Yang


As a graduate student in the lab of Jennifer Nemhauser in the UW Biology department, Eric characterized new constitutive promoters in plants and converted them into repressible logic NOR gates. Eric also studied relationships between promoter expression pattern and core promoter architecture through bioinformatics analysis. These works contributed to the growing field of plant synthetic biology. Eric holds a B.S. in Biochemistry from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
