How to pronounce my name: Gene-Ray Hsu
As a computational biologist, my focus is on unraveling the intricate tapestry of genome evolution. I thrive on formulating hypotheses that delve into fundamental questions in genetic and evolutionary biology. Using functional genomic data, I rigorously test these hypotheses, seeking to understand gene regulation, phenotypic robustness, and the complexities of cancer biology within an evolutionary context.
My work extends beyond hypothesis formulation. I develop bioinformatics tools tailored to navigate the biases, noise, and intricate information within biological data. These tools play a crucial role in sifting through complexities, enabling me to extract valuable biological insights and rigorously test the hypotheses I propose.
Within the realm of genetic and evolutionary biology, my interests encompass multifaceted aspects. I am particularly passionate about exploring how genes are regulated, understanding the mechanisms behind phenotypic stability despite genetic variations, and delving into the intricate interplay between evolution and cancer biology. Through computational approaches, I am driven to uncover the underlying principles governing genetic evolution and its profound implications across various biological contexts.
