Yueting’s interest towards nature and biodiversity was driven by her various fieldwork experience when she was an undergraduate student at the Beijing Normal University (BNU), as well as her involvement in studying the genetics of animal morphological variations. Yueting joined us in 2013 as a senior student and completed her B.S. thesis on examining the ungulate poaching intensity in Northeast China with a particular emphasis on its impact on Amur tigers’ prey base. Since Fall 2014, she has become a Ph.D. student at PKU and currently working on her thesis project that investigates the endogenous retrovirus insertions in KIT and their associations with white and white spotting coat colors in domestic cats.
