Brief bio: Feiyang Ma is a postdoc in Pellegrini lab at UCLA. Feiyang earned his B.S. in Biological Science at Nankai University in China, where he worked in microbiology research focusing on yeast and host interactions. Feiyang joined Matteo Pellegrini’s lab at UCLA as a graduate student, where he focused on methods development and data analysis for scRNA-seq. His present focuses are developing methods and analyzing bioinformatics datasets from RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, spatial-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq etc. These datasets were collected and analyzed in many settings, including human, monkey, mouse and Chlamydomonas studies in multiple tissues such as in aorta, skin, blood, adipose and placenta.
