HeX Lab’s research interests lie in genomics and bioinformatics, especially in investigation on the regulation of gene expression from a large amount of genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic data using bioinformatic approach; and identification of the role of gene regulation in developmental disorders and diseases. The long-term goal is to identify the correlation of the genomic and epigenomic information with development and disease (especially cancer) and to translate the findings into prognosis, diagnosis and clinical treatment.

1. DNA methylation in cell differentiation and cancer
2. Effects of nucleosome occupancy and methylation on gene regulation
3. Alternative splicing in disease and development
4. Evolution of new genes and comparative genomics
5. Tools and web services for analysis of genomic/epigenomic data
