PhD 2002 University of California, Los Angeles

College/Division Affiliation:

College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences

Center/Inst Affiliation(s):

Center for Plant Cell Biology

Areas Of Expertise:

Design and Analysis of Gene Expression Experiments Using DNA Microarrays; SNP/SFP Discovery Using DNA Microarrays

Research Summary:

We are interested in developing unified, automated statistical algorithms to discover newly-developed microarray-based single-feature polymorphism markers (SFPs) and gene expression markers (GEMs) in crops on a genome scale. We have successfully developed the algorithm based on robust projection pursuit (RPP) method to identify SFPs between two genotypes, with application in Barley, Rice, Cowpea and Wheat genome.  We are currently working on extending the RPP method for more powerful SFPs identification among multiple genotypes and a mixture model-based method for GEMs identification.
