Common Metabolic Diseases

Common Metabolic Diseases (June 2017 - Present)

I have spearheaded the development of The Common Metabolic Diseases Genome Atlas, an extensive bioinformatic and software platform. This innovative tool seamlessly links together thousands of genomic datasets, aiming to uncover the fundamental origins of diseases and enhance the efficiency of drug target investigations within the field of metabolic conditions.

Deciphering Lung Diseases at Single Cell Resolution

Deciphering Lung Diseases at Single Cell Resolution (March 2020 - Present)

I persistently engage in research focused on unraveling the molecular and genetic aspects associated with lung conditions. A notable accomplishment of our team is the development of the Lung Genome Browser, a tool that incorporates knowledge about respiratory cellular niches into comprehensive single-cell maps. This innovative approach enables us to examine the pathogenesis of various respiratory ailments, including the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Notably, our research has successfully identified the underlying mechanisms behind diverse symptom manifestations. At present, my ongoing investigation centers on understanding the genetic factors implicated in respiratory conditions, specifically Bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Echinobase (January 2011 - June 2017)

I took the initiative to create Echinobase, a sophisticated software platform, and conducted comprehensive bioinformatics analyses. This endeavor aimed to investigate the influence of genetic knockout and environmental factors on gene regulation, shedding light on evolutionary patterns. The outcome of this project has yielded a vital tool for conducting research on gene regulation and evolution, effectively addressing a significant gap within various research communities.


Cloud Computing for Comparative Genomic

Cloud Computing for Comparative Genomic (January 2008 - December 2010)

I revamped the reciprocal smallest-distance algorithm, enhancing its compatibility and paving the way for the creation of a groundbreaking cloud platform for comparative genomics analysis and alignment. This algorithm examines the diverse genomes to uncover genomic relationships and forecast the evolution of genes, organisms, and biological functions. Additionally, I successfully optimized the algorithm, significantly reducing computational load and cost by an impressive forty percent. This achievement marks the introduction of the first-ever comparative genomic algorithm on a cloud platform.
