Michael Xie

Pacific Northwest Research Institute

As a graduate student in the lab of Dr. Aimée Dudley at the Pacific Northwest Research Institute, Michael applied synthetic biology techniques to develop high-throughput yeast assays. These assays measured and analyzed the functional impact of human protein variants. This research generated large-scale functional datasets for enzymes related to metabolic disorders, which can be used to aid in clinical diagnostics. Michael is currently a research scientist at Amazon in Seattle.
