Bing received his B.S. in Marine Biology (2002) and M.S. in Molecular Genetics and Breeding (2005) from the Ocean University of China. His Master’s Thesis focused on the molecular genetics and breeding of shellfish. In 2006, he joined the IDP Ph.D. Program at the University of Florida College of Medicine. His Doctoral Thesis work focused on the roles of the GW182 protein in inducing miRNA mediated gene repression and regulating miRNA stability. Bing currently is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Human Genetics, Emory University School of Medicine.
