About This Laboratory

We are interested in developing efficient (and accurate) algorithms and software for computational problems in medical science and/or molecular biology. The data in the field has been increasing exponentially (i.e., big data), due to the recent development of technologies, such as Next-genration sequencers. Thus, sophisticated algorithm design and development are almost mandatory in the field. Our recent work includes genome asesmbly, database searching, and privacy preserving computation, artifical intelligence. Many of these problems require wide knowledge of computer science, such as combinatorial pattern matching, learning, graph theory. Doing algorithmic research in non-algorithmic world is great fun!
