Dr. Yunlong Liu received his Ph.D. degree from Department of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University in 2004, and then conducted postdoctoral training in Edenberg’s lab in the Department of Biochemistry at Indiana University School of Medicine. Currently, he is an associate editor of BMC Genomics and serves on the editorial boards of several international bioinformatics journals. His research interests span over genomics, bioinformatics, and systems biology, with particular emphasis on biomedical applications. He is the recipient of Achievement Award for the 2007 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering & Applied Computing, and CAMDA (Critical Assessment of Missive Data Analysis) 2009 Best Presentation Award. His current research is fully supported by NIH with multiple active grants from NIA, and NIAAA and NCRR.

Research Interest

Using statistical and informatics approaches, Dr. Liu’s laboratory develops computational methodologies to study transcriptional, post-transcriptional and epigenetic regulation.
High-throughput experimental data from multiple domains are integrated. Dr. Liu’s laboratory is actively developing methodologies and informatics pipelines in analyzing data from next generation sequencing technology, including DNA sequencing, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and so on.
