Ye Lab @ UGA Nutritional Genomics



Bridging Nutrition and Genomics

We are a Human Genetics lab with a special interest in Human Nutrition. We strive to identify genetic variants that make each one of us unique in our nutritional requirements and risks of metabolic diseases. We aim for a future of Personalized Nutrition. Our research employs computational and experimental methodologies from Evolutionary and Quantitative Genomics, Molecular Genetics, and Nutritional Sciences. Read more about our Research and latest Publications.

The Ye lab is in the Department of Genetics at the University of Georgia (UGA). We are also affiliated with the Institute of Bioinformatics at UGA.


Join Us

We always welcome highly motivated postdoc, graduate, undergraduate, and high school students to join the group. Read more about how to join us.

With the recently funded R35 MIRA, we are looking for graduate students and postdocs. Specifically, we are looking for one postdoc (or one PhD student) to work on human population genetics, developing and applying methods to study adaptive evolution of metabolic genes and traits. We are looking for one PhD student to work on human molecular genetics, investigating the causal variants and molecular mechanisms of adaptive and disease-associated variants.

If you are interested, please email your CV to Kaixiong.
