Resumé

Ruan group is interested to elucidate the structures and dynamics of all functional DNA elements in complex genomes through DNA sequencing analysis of genetic variations in genomes and transcriptomes. To facilitate such understanding, his lab contributed to the technology development for ENCODE. They developed high-throughput DNA sequencing and mapping methodologies, including the paired-end-tag (PET) sequencing strategy for RNA-PET/Seq, ChIP-PET/Seq, DNA-PET and ChIA-PET analysis. They are applying these sequencing-based methodologies to address complex genetic questions between normal versus disease states.
