Dr. Yingwei Wang is a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada. He obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degree at Harbin Institute of Technology, China, and his Ph.D. degree at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
Dr. Wang's research interests include cloud computing and bioinformatics. In the area of Cloud Computing, his major contribution is that he proposed the cloud-dew architecture. The cloud-dew architecture not only makes the personal data stored in the cloud continuously accessible by the user, but also enables a new application: web-surfing without an Internet connection. In the area of bioinformatics, Dr. Wang's theoretical contribution is that he discovered the determinants of genomic signatures. His practical contributions in this area are salmon viruses ISAV and PRV mutation and transmission analyses. These analyses are helpful in aquaculture disease prevention, police making, and further research.
- Whole-genome analysis of piscine reovirus (PRV) shows PRV represents a new genus in family Reoviridae and its genome segment S1 sequences group it into two separate sub-genotypes
- Sublytic complement C5b-9 complexes induce thrombospondin-1 production in rat glomerular mesangial cells via PI3-k/Akt
- The complement C5b-9 complexes induced injury of glomerular mesangial cells in rats with Thy-1 nephritis by increasing nitric oxide synthesis
- The spectrum of genomic signatures
- Inhibitory effects of ligustrazine, a modulator of thromboxane-prostacycline-nitric oxide balance, on renal injury in rats with passive Heyman nephritis
