Statistical Bioinformatics Lab
Professor Wenyi Wang is a big data scientist. Her background is unique in that she has a solid foundation in both statistics and biology, with expertise in wrangling big data such as those in cancer multi-omics. Her lab’s statistical methodology development is data-driven as it goes hand-in-hand with solving an important biological question. The lab’s two research focuses are:
1) Cancer risk prediction models using TP53 mutation-associated Li-Fraumeni syndrome as a model; and
2) Tumor heterogeneity and evolution using computational deconvolution of both transcriptomic and genomic data.
