Research interest

Based on high throughput DNA sequencing platforms and bioinformatic technologies, we investigate genetic/epigenetic mechanisms in gene function variation and expression regulation, and finally their implication in biological phenotypes, e.g. stem cell differentiation, aging, cancer, and heart diseases.

  1. ChIP- or MNase-seq: nucleosome positioning/occupancy, histone modifications, and other chromatin components, e.g. DNA repair proteins.
  2. RNA-seq or Microarray: gene expression, alternative splicing, LINC RNA.
  3. Genome sequencing: SNP, indel, and structural variation.

Software development

  1. DANPOS: a software for dyanmic analysis of nucleosome position and occupancy.
  2. DyChIPS: a software for dyanmic analysis of ChIP-sequencing.
