Research interests

  1. Genome Research
  2. Systems Biology

My interest: Applying bioinformatics, statistical, and other mathematical methods to quantify and establish simple but effective models to understand complex biological system and to provide predictions for hypothesis-driven biological science; marrying bench work to address fundamental medical problems, such as cancer and mental disorder.
