Statistical Bioinformatics Lab

Dr. Wang's lab is centered around large-scale complex data sets in recent genomic and familial studies and around important biological questions that emerge from the analysis of these data. The team focuses on the development of methods and software for the accurate measurement of high-throughput genomic data.

PI: Wenyi Wang

Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

Wenyi Wang (王文漪) is an associate professor at Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and Department of Biostatistics, MD Anderson Cancer center. She works in the area of statistical methods for high-throughput genomic data, cancer risk assessment and Bayesian modeling.
