VENI grant for Yang Li

Dr. Yang Li, a postdoc working in the Wijmenga group, has been awarded an NWO VENI grant (€250,000) to perform systems genetics analyses on metabolic fluxes using yeast as a model system. Genetic analyses on multiple molecular levels can provide insight into how a genotype relates to a phenotype. She will use this approach to look for heritable causes of metabolite flow rate (flux) through metabolic pathways. See her homepage
