Areas of Interest
Dr. Au is currently a professor of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics at the University of Michigan. At DCMB, he will develop novel statistical and computational methods for analyzing high-throughput biological data, including but not limited to transcriptome- and epigenetics-sequencing data. His lab will also perform world-leading science in stem cell biology, developmental biology and cancer research using cutting-edge sequencing techniques from PacBio and Oxford Nanopore Technologies. One of his current projects aims to design advanced algorithms and statistical models for analyzing transcriptome data generated from third-generation sequencing platforms. These methods will then be applied to study the complexity of breast cancer and stem cell transcriptomes.
