Our lab is in the Departments of Neurology and Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. We are located in the Michael F. Price Center for Genetics and Translational Medicine, and affiliated with the Rose F. Kennedy Center for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research and the Institute for Brain Disorders and Neural Regeneration, and the Department of Neuroscience. The research areas of the lab are computational genomics and bioinformatics, with a strong focus on mining and interpreting large-scale genomic data (ie, bigdata science). The biological themes of our research are centered on the genetic and epigenetic regulations of early development, including neural development and and heart development, and their dysregulation in diseases. We also apply our bioinformatics framework and expertise to study cancer development and treatment. We are always motivated by new challenges in innovative bioinformatics research. *Left is a word cloud summary of the abstracts in our recent publications.
We are looking for enthusiastic undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates to join our group. Reasonable computer programming skills is a plus. Candidates are expected to work in a wide range of bioinformatics projects. Please contact the PI, Deyou Zheng, for details.
