Research

We develop algorithms and computational tools to analyze, annotate and integrate various dataset including ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, PAS-seq and GUIDE-seq.  We are an active contributor to the open source open development Bioconductor project. To date, we have developed ten packages such as ChIPpeakAnno for mining and annotating ChIP-seq, ChIP-chip dataset or any list of genomic coordinates, CRISPRseek for designing target-specific and highly effective gRNAs of the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology, and GUIDEseq for analyzing GUIDE-seq dataset to evaluate gRNA specificity.
