Description:

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics Departmental Seminar Series presents:

Zhe Ji, PhD
Assistant Professor of Pharmacology
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering

With the advances of genomics technologies, we now can study the steps of gene expression regulation in a systematic and cost-effective manner. I will present our work developing novel computational tools using machine learning for integrative analyses of multi-omics data, and revealing novel molecular mechanisms controlling gene transcription and RNA translation. And we applied the experimental and computational genomics technologies to decode the key regulatory circuits mediating cancer progression and tumor microenvironment.
