Research Areas of Interest

  • 1) Developing genomics and computational approaches for the identification of three-dimensional (3D) chromatin interactions from the various omics-seq data.
  • 2) Functionally and mechanistically characterizing the roles of epigenetic marks in cancer development and progression using novel techniques such as 3C/ChIP/RT-qPCR, 3D-FISH and CRISPR/Cas9.
  • 3) Adapting/applying genome-wide omics-seq techniques in patient tissues to identify epigenetic-driven therapeutic targets and biomarkers.

Research Experience

  • Dr. Jin has extensive experience in developing computational and genomics approaches for analyzing various omics-seq data, and runs a systems biology lab with a balanced dry and wet components.
