I joined the Xing Lab on Sept. 2012. My current research lies in the field of computational biology and, more specifically, in the study of genomics with focus on identifying disease-causing genes, on hunting genetic signatures for better diagnostic and therapy, and on understanding the evolutionary relationships of different populations.
