  • His research mainly focuses on computational systems biology and bioinformatics. My interest covers broad area including genome assembly, RNA-Seq, high-throughput biological data analyses in plant and mammalian cells and many more.
  • His main collaborators of a wide range of projects utilizing high throughput technologies, such as next generation sequencing or microarray analysis, rely on a robust and effective data analysis pipeline to process voluminous data. I also developed novel computational and statistical methods for analysis of massive genome and transcriptome data to systematically investigate the genomic variation and dynamics of RNA regulatory networks. Implemented in-house bioinformatic tools, including next generation sequencing alternative splicing detection, etc.
  • The long-term goal of my research is to elucidate how genomic and environmental variation of RNA regulatory networks impacts phenotypic traits and diseases. I will combine genomic, bioinformatic, molecular, and network approaches to study mRNA processing and post-transcriptional gene regulation in plant and mammalian cells.
