  • Research center on elucidating the genetic basis and epigenetic mechanism of genome to phenome, especially on complex diseases and quantitative traits of livestock animals and humans.
  • Developing statistical approaches to study the interaction between livestock genomes and environmental factors, especially to discover alleles and epi-alleles as biomarkers that modify responses to environmental stimuli and to investigate how such epigenetic marks and alleles affect exposed animal.
  • Global analysis of systems biology by integrating a variety of biological knowledge from genetic, genomic, and epigenetic studies
  • Modeling and epigenetics in reprograming of chicken stem cell
  • Developing strategies of animal disease-prevention and improving livestock performance
