As the Human Genome Project entered a second phase of genome analysis, our research is directed at developing methodologies for mapping complex traits such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, various cancers and mental diseases, and studying functional genomics. By employing population genetics and investigating common variants with functional significance in the population, we attempt to increase the power and improve the accuracy for mapping human diseases. Current studies for function genomics are directed at multiple DNA sequence alignment, construction of databases recording different types of expression patterns for a variety of human cell types and early human development, developing methods for classifying the profile of gene expressions, establishing genetic circuits for various biological processes and human diseases, and analyzing the dynamic behavior of these genetic circuits.
