Computational Biology and Bioinformatics



Welcome to the Zhong lab from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, the University of Kansas. We strive to develop accurate and efficient computational methods to tackle biological challenges. We also collaborate with experimental biologists to understand the fundamantals of life. In particular, our research includes the following topics:

  • Non-coding RNA structure and function
  • Next-generation sequencing technology
  • de novo sequence assembly
  • Cancer genomics
  • Metagenomics
  • Epigenetics
  • Medical genetics
  • Evolution and phylogeny
