My primary fields of interests are modeling, algorithms and Bioinformatics. I tend to approach the real world biological problems through a computational viewpoint.
Currently, I am doing research in Dr. Zhengchang Su's lab. My focus is on the transcriptional complexity in bacterial genome. I started my research by looking at the properties and structures of operons. Currently, I'm investigating the pervasiveness and the roles of antisense RNA in gene transcription. Then I will be looking into dynamic operon structures in E. coli.
