Journal Cover: 2019 June issue of Veterinary Clinical Pathology

The research that I presented in the 2017 ACVP Annual Meeting (Vancouver, Canada) and ended up winning the 2017 ASVCP Young Investigator Award was published.

And, it made the cover of the 2019 June issue of Veterinary Clinical Pathology today!

Read the full research article "Comparison of RNA isolation and library preparation methods for small RNA sequencing of canine biofluids":

Hey guys, It's been a while since my last update.

Several months ago, I was invited to give a talk in VMID 689: Special Topics for all new graduate students in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University.

In this video, you will learn how to tell your story (even for your scientific presentation) with pictures and icon. Most importantly, you will know how to customize your icons to make the color fit your presentation theme.

Winning 2017 ACVP and ASVCP Young Investigator Awards

The 2017 ACVP meeting in Vancouver was amazing! 

Not only were my platform and poster presentation sponsored by the ASVCP Share the Future Travel Award and the ACVP Graduate Student/Resident Travel Award, they also got selected by the judges, winning both the ACVP and ASVCP Young Investigator Award!

As I am going to start my ClinPath residency in July 2017, I won't be able to attend the 2018 ACVP meeting in Washington DC this year :( 

I will keep up my research work and hope to share updates with you all soon!

ACVP website:
CVM Students Win Awards at ACVP Annual Meeting:

I can't believe this!!!

My poster won the first place in the ACVP Young Investigator Award in the Natural Disease category at 2016 ACVP Annual Meeting!!!

The title of my poster is "RNA-Seq of Serial Kidney Biopsies Obtained During Progression of Chronic Kidney Disease from Dogs with X-Linked Hereditary Nephropathy". I spent the whole 2016 working on RNA-Seq data analysis, and it is the best reward ever!!!

Feel free to download the PDF of my poster :)

My RNA-Seq Lecture Was Featured on the "RNA-Seq Blog"!

Link: How to analyze RNA-Seq data? Find differentially expressed genes in your research.

Another exciting news to share. 

I was invited as the guest lecturer for VTPP 638 “Analysis of Genomic Signals” at Texas A&M University. My recent lecture on "How to Analyze RNA-Seq Data?" was featured by the most well-known sequencing blog "RNA-Seq Blog". The post has been viewed for over 3,500 times, and now the YouTube video has been watched for over 2,000 times.

Hope y'all enjoy the video :)
