Jung Kyoon Choi, from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea, aims to uncover novel biological knowledge that is buried under a massive amount of information coming from genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic data by developing and applying analytical methods, hoping for valuable discoveries that can help human health. His main focus is on mapping information objects such as genes, proteins, and ligands and finding interaction relationships among the objects by integrating various types of omics and network data. He is also interested in engineering genomes and epigenomes to understand fundamental gene regulatory mechanisms. He has been invited by Roderic Guigó (CRG).
