Microarrays • experimental design • random error models • bias correction • normalization • affymetrix chips • high-throughput screening

Research Interests

My primary research interests during the last 10 years have been the development of data analysis approaches for high-throughput data for the following biotechnology applications:
  1. High-throughput screening (HTS) of small molecule and RNAi data
  2. Genome-wide mRNA translation
  3. Image-based high content screening (HCS)
  4. Microarray gene expression
