Our group is developing computational methods to model and solve problems in biology and medicine, fueled by the wealth of sequence data generated by new and evolving sequencing technologies. We design accurate and efficient algorithms and software tools to tackle current problems in genome assembly, gene and alternative splicing annotation, microRNA genomics and host-pathogen interaction, and apply them to characterize the genetic and genomic landscape of different cellular states and different organisms.
