Since June 2014
I'm responsible for bioinformatics analysis of mammalian RNA-Seq data. I'm implementing existing computational analysis pipelines for the related analysis tasks, including differential analysis of gene regulation, gene fusion, detection of long non-coding RNAs.
Postdoc, Marie Curie Fellowship
May 2012 --- April 2014
In this period, I am responsible for establishing analysis pipelines for next-generation sequencing data produced by Illumina and 454, respectively. These workflows covered many data analytical issues of metagenomes, metatranscriptomes and some special functional metagenomes (e.g. metamobilome). The pipelines developed by me support the following analytical tasks: quality control of raw sequencing data; de novo assembly from paired or unpaired reads; taxonomic profiling analysis; phylogenetic analysis; metabolic reconstruction; network-based approach for analyzing microbial co-occurrence relationships; sub-database-based functional annotation; some custom analysis tasks for function-enriched metagenome, such as identifying the potential complete plasmid contigs in the metamobilome data.
July 2008 --- April 2012
I was firstly employed as a Lecturer (2008-2010) and then as an Associate Professor (2011-2012). My main work is bioinformatics analysis of microbial genomic sequences. I have completed sequence analysis tasks to uncover comparative genomic characterization and genome wide evolutionary trajectory of some bacterial and viral species. During this period, I recognized that I am not suitable to undertake teaching of animal medicine courses. To become a full-time bioinformatician proficient in the analysis of various NGS projects should be my career goal in future.
