My group studies the function of human genes involved in diseases based on their deep homology in multiple organisms. By analyzing large-scale functional genomic data in multiple organisms, we computationally infer the role of uncharacterized genes (or novel function of already characterized genes) in phenotypes that we are interested in. We also validate our predictions in model organisms by high-throughput systems biology experiments.
