Our lab focus on developing high-throughput data analysis techniques towards understanding complex biological processes in human normal and diseased tissues. We identify simple Boolean patterns in high-dimensional datasets and correlate them to the underlying biological processes. We have successfully applied this concept in blood stem cell differentiation and bladder cancer. Currently, we are working towards expanding our analysis to other data types including, mutations, ChIP-seq, RNAseq, copy number variation, microbiome, and viral genomes.
