Yuwen Liu received his Ph.D. training in the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology at University of Chicago, under the supervision of Dr. Kevin White. During his graduate study, he combined experimental genomics approaches and bioinformatics analysis to study the transcriptional network of nuclear receptors in prostate cancer. 


My current research focuses on studying the interaction among cis-regulatory elements and how they function to regulate gene expression. I am developing new techniques to systematically measure enhancer activity in a high-throughput manner, as well as computational methods to model transcriptional regulatory networks.\
