I am a PhD student in White lab from Committee on Genetics, Genomics & Systems Biology. I am interested in mammalian gene regulation and cancer biology. I am using human breast adenocarcinoma derived cell line MCF-7 as a model to characterize NR-regulated transcriptional networks in breast cancer and seek out novel combinatorial therapy for breast cancer. I am employing RNA-seq and microwestern arrays to perform large scale analysis on transcriptomic and proteomic data, and will integrate both data by computational modeling.
