Research Fellow in Biomedical Informatics
Mentor: Peter Park, PhD

Lucy Jung finished her PhD from Speech and Hearing program in the division of Health Science Technology at MIT. Since joining the Park lab at DBMI, she has shifted her research interest to epigenomics. Lucy has specialized in computational analysis of epigenetic data, especially for data from chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments followed by high-throughput sequencing (ChIP-seq). One of her main projects was to perform integrative analysis of various functional genomics datasets for the Drosophila modENCODE project. She also has worked closely with several experimental biologists around the Longwood area on analysis of chromatin data, on topics such as dosage compensation, Polycomb complex, and cellular reprogramming.
