Previous research: Neuropharmacology of histamine in anxiety and sleep deprivation.
Future plans: Understanding the concepts of Bioinformatics and using the available bioinformatics resources in combination with medical background to contribute in the field of interdisciplinary research.
Favorite proverb: To learn something, you need to try it, and you have to sacrifice for it
I worked at a pharmaceutical company for 30 years and joined to this team.
My research interest: To identify the disease responsible genes from many candidate genes for common disease derived from genome sequencing. I want to find out drug targets by analyzing the network of the disease responsible genes.
My hobby: Go (Igo)
I had studied in the field of analytical chemistry for 4 years and joined this laboratory. My current research interests are following three topics.
1) Learning basic of bioinformatics
2) Doing simulation for compensating analytical results
3) System biology
I came from Korea to Japan 6 years ago, and my research topic in doctoral course was about assessment of bacterial effect on bioaerosol of downwind area following Aeolian dust events. My current research topic is understanding interaction between gut microbial flora and various data from human. And I`m also learning basic of bioinformatics.
Graduate Student (Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences, Osaka University
I was in wet laboratory and cultured cells.
I get motivated to learn bioinformatics.
Visiting Scientists and Collaborative Research Scientists
I am interested in developing statistical, machine learning and physics based algorithms to predict biomolecular interactions from sequence.
This includes protein-DNA, protein-RNA, protein-protein and other ligand interactions. My current interest is in genome-wide interactions and integrated approaches.
I am also interested in deciphereing regulatory dynamics of immune system at a molecular level and trying to discover and decipher unknown regulatory events in macrophages.
