Lee Yeoh

Dr Lee Yeoh's skills are equally split between wet work and bioinformatics, with extensive experience in both wet-lab experimental techniques and computational analyses. He has worked primarily in parasitology, including Plasmodium falciparum (which causes malaria), Plasmodium berghei, and Toxoplasma gondii. He is knowledgable in genetic manipulation of parasites, including cutting-edge CRISPR technology, as well as phenotyping, drug design, and sequencing.
He is also highly competent in bioinformatic techniques, including transcriptomic, epigenetic, evolutionary, and statistical analyses. His complementary skills in diverse disciplines allow him to uncover novel insights into a variety of biological questions.
Lee completed his PhD in 2018, supervised by Stuart Ralph and Geoff McFadden at the University of Melbourne. His project focused on alternative splicing in apicomplexan parasites, resulting in three first-author publications. He is currently working with Michael Duffy, investigating epigenetic regulation in Plasmodium falciparum.
