Welcome to Computational and Network Biology Lab
From unidimensional to multidimensional biological network
- What are the impacts caused by interaction rewiring in the cellular system?
- How the biological networks react as the cellular system is disturbed or attacked?
In the living system, biomolecules are continuously forming and breaking interactions to turn on or shut down biological processes inside or outside the cells. Accordingly, network or systems biology are capable of studying living systems comprehensively. We have developed a computational framework based on data science approach to investigate the biological networks and extract information from them. This approach can do top-down analysis that incorporate large scale omics data into networks to identify the critical interactions of interests; and bottom-up discovery to predict the biological processes in which the interactions of interests from small scale experiments are involved. We have successfully applied this approach to discover the potential mechanism of cancer development. In the future, we will focus on constructing multidimensional biological network and develop a framework to investigate this complicate network.
Tumor homo- and heterogeneity
Pan-cancer network and precision medicine
- How to apply computational biology to study tumor homo- and heterogeneity?
- How to develop the precision medicine and pan-cancer treatment from biological networks?
With the accumulation of cancer omics data, tumor homo-/heterogeneity can be studied at large scale. The studies of tumor heterogeneity demonstrated the subtypes of cancers beyond the current cancer classification and further emphasized the importance of the precision medicine; homogeneity studies discover the shared characteristics between cancers and to identify the core of carcinogenesis. We have applied the network biology to study pan-cancer and identified a common property in immunoediting between cancers. We also found that the genes influencing cancer patient survival are highly exclusive between cancers; in pan-cancer, survival influential genes associated with poor and better survival are enriched in the biological processes of cell proliferation and energy metabolism respectively. We are now working on developing the machine learning model to discover precision medicine and identify the patient characteristics of cancer.
