Research Interests

​His research mainly focuses on de novo genome assembly and annotation of two corallimorpharias, as well as evolution analysis. To understand how the non-calcifying ancestor of contemporary coral evolved to become a foundation species of entire ecosystem, he used a comparative genomics approach to analyze six different anthozoan genomes and identified different potential genes related to coral calcification.
