Biography

The advance of high-throughput technologies such as microarray and next generation sequencing offers a great opportunity to study biological systems through genome-wide approach. My research focuses on the design of statistical and computational tools to identify genetic or epigenetic causes of medically important diseases. In particular, I am interested in the discovery of various pathogenesis-related variations, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), copy number variations (CNVs), insertions/deletions, and methylation.
