My research interest has been in the development of highly accurate and sensitive computational methods for analyzing large-scale genomic data, especially in the area of detecting and analyzing genetic variations and somatic mutations. My group has developed computational tools for analyzing genetic variations and somatic mutations, which have contributed to the key discoveries made in the pilot phase of two major cancer genomic initiatives of the National Cancer Institute: Cancer Genome Atlas Project (TCGA) and the Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatment (TARGET).
