Research Interest

Lingling An, PhD, conducts research in the interdisciplinary boundaries of many fields such as statistical sciences, biological and medical sciences, genomics and genetics. Her statistical group's major research interests include development and application of statistical and computational methods for analysis of high-dimensional genomic/genetic, metagenomic/ metatranscriptomic, and epigenomic data. The overlying vision is to develop rigorous, timely and useful statistical and computational methodologies to help biologists/geneticists to ask, answer, and disseminate biologically interesting information in the quest to understand the ultimate function of DNA and gene network.
