Welcome to the Zhao Lab for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at the School of Basic Medical Sciences, Peking University.
We are interested in 1) computational modeling of genetic and epigenetic mechanisms for cell identity regulation in diseases, with a particular interest in tumorigenesis; 2) developing novel bioinformatics techniques and utilizing these techniques to understand the regulation mechanism at a system level; 3) using bioinformatics to gain novel biological insights into various cancers, development, stem cell in collaboration with experimental biologists.
***News! News! News! The Zhao lab is recruiting motivated Postdocs to work on 1) developing computational and statistical methods to intergrate epigenetic features in cancer systems; 2) utilizing machine learning to understand cancer driver lncRNAs. Welcome to join us.
