Ying Sun received her Master degree in Bioinformatics from The University of Georgia in 2013, and her PhD degree in Biology from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2018. The title of her PhD thesis was “Evolution of Marine Roseobacters at Different Timescales”. In her PhD research she focused on the evolutionary mechanisms giving rise to the genomic diversity among marine microbial lineages at different timescales, from ancient divergence to homologous recombination process between closely related strains. Broadly, she is interested in understanding how genetic variation in natural populations is shaped by the interplay with the biotic and abiotic environment and the genetics of adaptation.

Ying joined the LOMIC in Feb 2019 as a Post Doc of Ingrid Obernosterer. Ying will participate to the MOBYDICK project ( through the application of comparative metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics analyses of microbial communities sampled from contrasted ecosystems in the Southern Ocean. She will explore functional profiles (e.g., microbial community dynamics, gene expression variation etc.) along the changing environmental gradients (e.g., iron availability), to identify important routes of carbon fluxes through bacterial communities and especially the molecular mechanisms involved in the short-term acclimation and long-term adaptation for bacteria to survive in iron-limited conditions.
