Our laboratory is interested in how we can draw biologically useful information from DNA, RNA and genetic studies and how we can apply the information to clinical settings in order to understand the basics of diseases and traits, to improve management of diseases and to develop novel treatment. Various diseases and traits are our targets, especially autoimmune diseases, hematology diseases and malignancies. We integrate multi-layered information of genetics, intermediate phenotypes and clinical information together and analyze by cutting-edge statistical genetics, epidemiological methods and machine learning-based approach.
