Zhaohui "Steve"  Qin


Faculty, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

I have extensive experience in statistical modeling and computing with applications to statistical genetics and genomics. My recent research is focused on developing Bayesian model-based methods to analyze data generated from applications of next-generation sequencing technologies such as ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, Hi-C, WGBS, resequencing, and on developing software so that the methods can be easily adopted by the research community. I am also actively collaborating with biomedical scientists and clinicians on projects that utilize next-generation sequencing technologies to better understand genomics and epigenomics.
