ResearchComputational Cancer Epigenetics
Through genome-wide transcription factor binding, chromatin dynamics, and gene expression profiles, we try to model the specificity and function of transcription factors, chromatin regulators and lncRNAs in tumor development, progression, drug response and resistance.
