I am a research assistant in Zongli Zheng's group, focusing on analysing NGS data.

With the advances in next-generation sequencing technologies, we can now identify changes of organisms at multi-omics scale, high spatial-temporal resolution, and with large sample size. New experimental approaches such as single-cell sequencing not only bring about tremendous amount of data, but also unprecedented challenges to summarize and translate these data to meaningful information. I found working with these NGS datasets particularly exciting, especially on deciphering what the signals we picked up from the sequencing data mean in terms of cellular processes.
I am currently working with Zongli Zheng to update and develop analytical pipelines for NGS data aiming to identify gene-editing targets of the CRISPR-Cas9 system on human cells with high precision and efficiency.
