Yee Fang Hum

I was born and raised in Malaysia. I started college in INTI International University College in Malaysia but, in my sophomore year, I transferred my course credits to University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 2012, I graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS in Genetics and a certificate in Global Health. I received excellent genetics training as an undergraduate researcher at Dr. William Engels' lab; my undergraduate research focused on how aging affects the usage of different double-strand DNA break (DSB) repair pathways in Drosophila male germ line.

Currently, I am rotating with Dr. Sue Jinks-Robertson, where I am examining Topoisomerase I-dependent deletion hotspots in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Aside from science, I love traveling and baking.
