    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    My research activities focus on statistical genomics and genetics, including methodological studies and their applications. I am also interested in the machine learning and statistical computing techniques related to these problems. Currently, I am especially working on developing statistical methods and software for (1) the analysis of next generation sequencing data, including ChIP-Seq, CLIP-Seq, and RNA-Seq, and (2) the integrative analysis of high throughput genomic data, with application to genome-wide association studies (GWAS), cancer genomics, and studies of gene regulatory mechanisms.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
