Research Field

Bioinformatics, Genome assembly, Large-scale analysis of biological information

Research Subject

(1)Genome assembly algorithm, (2)Parallel computing framework for genome analysis, (3) RNA sequencing analysis

Current Research

We are developing a genome assembly algorithm to reconstruct large genomes of larger than 100Mb by new-generation DNA sequencers. Other topics include sequence alignment algorithm, variation detection, and RNA-sequencing. We are also developing a parallel computing framework specifically designed for genome analysis.

Keywords

Genome assembly, comparative genomics, distributed parallel programming, skeletal programming
