Research Interests

Genome technology has gradually become the major driving force for precision medicine and biomedical research. With the advent of single cell sequencing and single molecule sequencing, it is possible to tackle complex biological systems at an unprecedented molecular resolution. The Genome Technology program, led by Dr. Jun Zhu, is focused on the development of innovative genomic technologies, leveraging the latest advances in high-throughput genomics and computational tools, to facilitate collaborative and transformative research at the NHLBI DIR. Specifically, the aim is to improve single cell transcriptomic/epigenetic analysis, and cell-free DNA/RNA profiling using liquid biopsy.
