Research is centered on elucidating the genetic basis and mechanism of complex traits and diseases of animals and humans, which can potentially leads to higher production of economically important traits for livestock animals, and can also results in better prediction and cure of diseases
Focus on developing statistical approaches and computing tools to boost the power of current and next-generation sequencing-based genetic studies, including approaches to facilitating accurate and powerful tests of association, to detecting gene-gene interactions, and to integrating a variety of biological knowledge from genetic, genomic, and epigenetic studies to genomic selection of livestock species
