Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Wang’s research interests are in the statistical applications in biology and medical sciences. His recent work concerns developing statistical methods and tools for large-scale, high-dimensional genomic, genetic and human brain mapping data. Some working topics include species number estimation, nucleosome positioning mapping, next-generation sequencing analysis, RNA-seq normalization, fMRI data in human brain mapping, and Bayesian network with applications to The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data. His lab has developed a few software tools that have been frequently used by researchers, including NuPoP (for nucleosome positioning prediction, see bioconductor) and SPECIES (for species number estimation, see CRAN).
