My broad experiences working in bioinformatics, biotechnology, food science, biofuel, and computer science, plus many years of teaching at a university, have prepared me as an excellent Bioinformatics researcher. My current research in Bioinformatics focuses on transcriptomics, metagenomics, proteomics, comparative genomics, structure prediction, analysis of minor variants, evolution, microbiome, and high-throughput sequence analysis. Bioinformatics is not only the data analysis at the end of research cycle. It plays important roles in every part of research cycle. The combination of Bioinformatics and traditional wet lab biology is the future of modern biology.
