Research Area

We focus our recent research on three areas: (1) Systems Computational Toxicology: We integrate and mine heterogeneous biomedical data for mechanistic exploration and rapid prediction of drug bioactivity, especially toxicity. (2) Individual Medicine: We develop pharmacological databases or tools to facilitate better understanding and prediction of individual drug responses (especially toxicological response). (2) Systems Biology and -Omics: We develop novel methods and applications to seek biological clues, e.g., molecular mechanisms of organ development and function, from high throughput data, e.g., microarray and RNA-seq, using Amphioxus as animal model.
