Research Subject

Using high-throughput biological tools (eg. DNA sequencers) and massively parallel computers, I study chromatin structure, epi-genomics, genome sequencing, (chromosomal) evolution, transcription initiation, and image processing for yeast and fruitfly with graduate students. I also have an interest in data mining and query optimization for relational and XML database systems.

Current Research

It is well understood that proving some mathematical properties automatically using computers is impossible. With this in mind, I have been attempting to develop efficient algorithms and software programs for proving restricted classes of problems in genome science, database systems and machine learning. For the last couple of years, I have been fascinated by the machinery behind how information is coded in the genome and its higher level chromatin structure, and I would like to understand the relevance of the chromatin structure with transcription and evolution.
