Arang Rhie, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Arang received a BS in computer science in 2009 and MS in bioinformatics in 2011 from Ewha Womans University. She completed her PhD in 2017 at the Genome Medicine Institute, Department of Biomedical Science, Seoul National University College of Medicine. Her dissertation research aimed to build the first high-quality Korean reference genome for use in medical diagnostics. Currently she is a visiting fellow in the Genome Informatics Section at NIH/NHGRI, where her research continues to focus on the reconstruction of true haplotypes from long-read sequencing and other emerging technologies. She is an active member of the Vertebrate Genomes Project (VGP), which aims to generate complete and error-free genome assemblies of all vertebrates.
