Yudong Cai is a Full-Time Professor and principle investigator at the Institute of Systems Biology, Shanghai University, China. He got the Ph.D. degree equivalent in biocomputing in 1992 from the Shanghai Research Centre of Biotechnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China. From 1992 to 1995, he worked as an Assistant/Associate Professor at the Shanghai Research Centre of Biotechnology, China. From 1996 to 2007, he worked as a visiting scientist in the Department of Mathematics, Stanford University, USA, a postdoc in Biocomputing Program, EMBL, Germany, and a research scientist at some universities in UK. From 2007 to 2009, he served as a principle investigator at the Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Chinese Academic of Sciences, Shanghai, China. His research interests include prediction of protein-protein interacting binding sites, protein-D/RNA binding sites, and enzyme active sites; biology network function prediction based on the biochemical parameters extracted from simple and small networks such as protein complexes, metabolic pathways, and regulatory networks; and biomedical informatics such as disease genes finding, SAP, SNP, prediction of protein fibril-forming segments, prediction of disordered regions, and prediction of drug-target interaction.
