Research Interest

My   main interests lie in two aspects: cis-regulatory element (CRE)   prediction and genomic prediction.

1.         In CRE   prediction, our group aims to develop novel computational algorithms including   deep learning methods and sequence complexity methods, to perform various   prediction tasks concerning CRE predictions including cell\tissue specific   enhancer prediction, cross-species enhancer prediction, chromatin accessible   DNA prediction, as well as predictions of critical regions of CRE by   analyzing CRISPR-edited CRE data.

2.         In   genomic prediction, our aims to integrate multiple omics data and employ   various regression models including LASSO, random forest, deep learning, to   learn complex biological network that is useful for phenotype predictions.

Academic activities
