My research is applying computational approaches to solve biological or basic medical problems based on high-throughput genomic data, particularly next generation sequence (NGS) data. One focus is cancer biomarker signatures development, especially the Yin Yang gene expression mean ratio (YMR) signature modeled around patient prognosis using high-throughput genomic data. Another focus is to develop new bioinformatics algorithms and tools for Massive Diverse Data Integrative Analysis for variety of genomic data including gene expression, copy number, mutation, and epigenomic data.
