- Microbiome research and applications.
We have focused on solving computational problems in microbiome, especially those knowledge discovery problems from microbiome big-data. And we have also applied our methods on microbiome applciations.
Our result on the efficient micorbiome analysis platform was featured/reported in popular science magazines and newspapers:
ScienceNet of China.
- Computational molecular biology.
We have designed varies software in computational molecular biology. Many of which could be found on our website, as well as on github.
We are currently looking for an outstanding postdoc to work on our
computational biology projects. The announcement of the position
can be found here.
I have lead the teaching of two undergraduate courses this year: Biostatistics, and Project Design. And I have jointly tought other 4 undergraduate courses and 2 graduante courses.
