Research Area

Our lab focuses on the development of novel genomic technologies and their application on biomedical research. We endeavor to analyze genetic variations with higher resolution and accuracy, to understand the effects of genetic variations on different biological processes.  To achieve our goal, we integrate a wide breadth of techniques, such as microfluidics and high-throughput sequencing, so that we can study single cells or even single chromosomes with unprecedented accuracy. With these powerful tools, we study the genetic features within various biological processes, and the causes of diseases during these processes. Our research projects include: genetic variations driving rare inheritable diseases; cell lineage tracing during embryonic development; proliferation and differentiation of cancer stem cells; genetic diversity of our immune system.
