Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Cai's research mainly focuses on the development and application of bioinformatic, statistical and computational methods for analyzing genomic data from high throughput techologies such as microarray and next-generation sequencing. He has broad experience and interests in bioinformatics, biostatistics, microbiology and cancer genomics. Specially, his current research focuses on (1) studying the properties of sequencing reads and have developed efficient methods for analysis of sequencing data, such as differential expression analysis and batch effect correction, (2) understanding the etiology of disease by integrating multi-demensional genomics data, such DNA methylation and RNA expression, (3) conducting disease-gene association studies and predicting disease outcome using genetic markers and (4) developing methods to infering biological subpopulation structure and the changes under environmental disturbance.
