BiographyDr Ge's teaching and research focus on data science and bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is a discipline that combines statistics, computer science, and biological context to analyze large genomics datasets to help understand the complex logic of life.
Tools that help biologists analyze massive data
We develop easy to use tools such as iDEP and ShinyGO that can translate massive genomic data into actionable insights.iDEP
Neural networks decomposes complex patterns into building blocks.Paper
How embryos development
Exploratory bioinformatics investigation reveals the importance of “junk” DNA in early embryo development. It also identified key regulators that are later confirmed experimentally.Paper

GrantsDr. Ge's research group is supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), the state of South Dakota, Sanford Health etc.
Area(s) of ResearchCurrently, the main focus of his group is the development of tools and resources for the interpretation of large genomic data. Another emphasis is the role of transposable elements in the gene regulation, especially in embryonic stem cells. Dr. Ge also enjoys working with many collaborators in a supporting role.
