Dr Peng He | Visiting Scientist

He, Peng

Peng He is interested in gene regulation inside individual cells and across the broader cell communities that govern developmental and physiological processes. His current work focuses on lung development and morphogenesis.

Peng is currently using single-cell RNA-seq and ATAC-seq approaches to understand the input and output of the functional genome. He is also inventing new computational methods to enhance data mining processes in genomics research.
