Genomics & Bioinformatics

Learn about the genome, a life’s blueprint, and the way how to decode the secret messages in it, in many cases related to human diseases like cancer. One further step, learn how to engineer the genome, which can correct the disease-related errors for a cure.

We have developed and utilized multiple OMICS technologies to understand our genome for biomedical perspectives. Together with the power of computational biology and genome engineering, we are pursuing the next generation genome- based biomedicine, such as precision medicine and molecular diagnostics.
