Dr. Yang has been working in Bioinformatics since 2001, primarily in the areas of Mass Spectrometry-based Metabolomics and Proteomics. Before she joined NIST, she developed DBParser software package for high-throughput Shotgun Proteomics data analysis at NIH in 2003. At NIST, she developed numerous algorithms and software programs for building the NIST Tandem Mass Spectral Library of small molecules and peptides. She developed various quality control tools for library examination. She also created the first high resolution Tandem Mass Spectral Library of single protein digests of HSA.
