Our group focuses on integrating and interpreting large scale genetic and genomic data to understand aging and complex disease system. One area is to develop novel methods that stitch together various pieces of information to identify the network of genes whose perturbation by genetic variation would lead to aging and disease phenotype. Multiple problems need better solutions:

-Better computational models for data-driven disease network discovery

-Mechanistic interpretation of the link between disease network and aging network

-Systems strategy on disease network rectification and translational research
