Our group and research
We aim to further our understanding of the genome by integrating large-scale genomic datasets. We develop computational methods to exploit multi-dimensional genomic/epigenomic/transcriptomic landscapes to understand cell-type specific or spatio-temporal gene regulation. Using computational integrative approaches, we also study transcriptional mechanisms controlling cell differentiation and cell identify. Our areas of research include studying gene regulations in adipocyte, liver, cancer cells and stem cell differentiation.
For this, we develop computational algorithms for various genome scale datasets including DNA methylation, single cell genomics, spatial genomics, ChIP-exo, GROseq and HiC. More information is found at https://www.bric.ku.dk/research-groups/Research/won-group/.
