Junior Researcher Spotlight Yingnan Ju - HIVE MC-IU
Yingnan Ju is a Ph.D. student in Intelligent Systems Engineering at Indiana University, Bloomington, working with Professor Katy Börner. Yingnan received his master’s degree in software engineering from Peking University before working as a software engineer at Microsoft Research Asia, where he focused on augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR).
His research at IU is centered around data visualization, computer vision, and machine learning. For his Ph.D., he is developing different methods to visualize the structure, function, and results of CNN algorithms in support of algorithm optimization, validation, and teaching.
While working from home, Yingnan enjoys his four monitors and is considering adding more. In his free time, he likes biking, hiking, and doing exercises with Nintendo Switch. He is also an avid pumpkin carver. Happy Autumn!

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) are co-collaborating on a new initiative, developmental Genotype-Tissue Expression (dGTEx), to catalog and analyze transcriptional profiles from a wide variety of tissues from the pediatric period, including neonates through adolescents, in a post-mortem setting.
UC San Diego Institute for Genomic Medicine Symposium on Spatial Omics
The UC San Diego Institute for Genomic Medicine is holding a virtual symposium on Monday, October 26, 2020. This meeting calls scientists from across the United States to come together and contribute their cutting-edge ideas on "Spatial Omics.” As a platform for researchers to discuss the latest advancements on spatial gene expression, this meeting strives to glean novel insights into the role cell-type specific regulatory mechanisms play in complex traits. It is in conjunction with the virtual American Society of Human Genetics meeting occurring on October 27th through October 30th, 2020.
HuBMAP PIs Long Cai and Katy Börner will be presenting.
NASA is requesting $28 billion to return to the moon and construct a small restaurant.
It may have great food, but no atmosphere.
