Ying-Ja Chen received her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2008. Before that, she received her Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the National Taiwan University of in 2002. During her graduate studies in the Genomics and Systems Biotechnology Laboratory led by Dr. Xiaohua Huang, she developed a DNA sequence technology called sequencing by denaturation (SBD), which is a simple and potentially low-cost method for genome sequencing. After proving the principle of this method, she joined Dr. Christopher Voigt's laboratory in the field of synthetic biology. As a postdoctoral scholar, she is developing biophysical models to characterize genetic parts, such as transcriptional terminators. These models can be useful for the design and prediction of larger genetic circuits.
