We are interested in solving the challenging computational problems in biology. Specifically, we aim to
- study theory and design algorithms for the mathematical formulations abstracted from computational biology, and
- develop tools and softwares that can be widely used by the biological and biomedical community.
Current research topics include:
- transcript assembly
- RNA-seq quantification
- single-cell RNA-seq
- computational cancer biology
- genome rearrangements
- protein folding
