Welcome to Ma Lab

We are group of people dedicated to Bioinformatics research and service provision.

What We Do

Within the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology, we seek to apply Big-Data technologies and methods to answer questions in plant biology, specifically in studies of crop genomics and genetics.

The main research interests include:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and Big-Data analysis,

  • Epitranscriptome: Bioinformatics approaches and regulation mechanisms,

  • Bioinformatics-based genotype-phenotype mapping,

  • Systems biology approaches-based plant stress research.
