SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS:

Development of new methods, algorithms and computational softwares for exploring and interpreting genomic data in a framework of automated sequence analysis. Our current emphasis is on the small RNAs (microRNAs and small interfering RNAs) in plants and animals.

Analysis of small RNA libraries from deep-sequencing data, expression regulation profiling, discovery and annotation novel miRNA gene and their targets, as well as identification of stress-related small RNAs.
