Research interests

  • Peptide Drug discovery

    Our lab aims to developing an automated computational pipeline for peptide drug design and discovery, which involves bioactive peptide generation, prediction, and functional analysis (such as peptide toxicity).

  • Epigenomic data analysis

    Our lab focuses on developing computational methods to accurately annotate epigenetic modifications in whole-genome scale, and study their functions in gene regulatory network.

  • Developing machine learning algorithms

    Our lab also focuses on the development of generic machine learning algorithms and applied them for analyzing biological sequence data and imaging data. We particularly interest in designing new representation learning architectures to automatically learn and extract the functional patterns underlying different data.
