Ari Hong studies biochemistry and computational biology to develop methods using nanopore direct RNA sequencing, especailly for decoding new insights into translation and epitranscriptome.
- 2020–present Master's Student, Interdisciplinary Program in Bioinformatics, Seoul National University
- 2016–2020 B.S. in Food Science and Biotechnology, Seoul National University
- 2020–present Master's Student, Interdisciplinary
Program in Bioinformatics, Seoul National University
She is studying computational biology, especially about direct RNA sequencing or DRS, transcriptomics, and epigenetics. Under the guidance of Dr. Hyeshik Chang, she is developing new methodologies for DRS to decoding new insights into epigenome. Also, she is working on high throughput analysis for the mechanisms of translation.
- 2019–2020 Intern, Seoul National University
As an undergraduate at the Seoul National University, she had internship in Dr. Chang's lab. She learned the basic methods to analyze high-throughput RNA sequencing data, including ribosome profiling, or CLIP-seq using data from LIN28A Is a Suppressor of ER-Associated Translation in Embryonic Stem Cells for two months. In September 2019, she started a project to proceed with the Master's course and develop an analysis pipeline. She also learned experimental techniques such as cell culture, RNA extraction, in vitro transcription, and gel extraction.
- 2019–2019 Intern, Seoul National University
She worked as undergraduate research student at Food Engineering Laboratory for two months. Under Dr. Youngjin Choi, she constructed system to detect target from food sample, such as allergen or food poisoning bacteria. Gold nanoparticle, silica nanoparticle, and aptamer were used to that system, and she optimized the their ratio to present shift of precipitation area according to target concentration.
- 2017-2019 Undergraduate Research Assistant, Center for Food and Bioconvergence, Seoul National University
She worked as undergraduate research assistant at CFB or center for food and bio convergence located in Seoul National University. Under Dr. Yang Kim, she worked on preparing a sample for the paper (Yang et al, 2020).
