Fengzhu Sun is a Professor of Molecular and Computational Biology. His
Bachelors in Mathematics is from
Professor Sun works in the area of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Statistical Genetics, and Mathematical Modeling. His research interests include protein interaction networks, gene expression, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP), linkage disequilibrium (LD) and their applications in predicting protein functions, gene regulation networks, and disease gene identification. He is also interested in metagenomics, in particular, marine genomics, and alignment-free sequence analysis.
His previous research accomplishments include: 1) protein domain interaction and protein function prediction integrating multiple data sources, 2) dynamic programming algorithms for haplotype block partition and tag SNP selection, 3) 1-TDT: transmission disequilibrium test when one parent is available, and 4) theoretical studies of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) related biotechnologies.
