Member of CQB at PKU;

Vice dean of Dept of BME at PKU


 

Education:

 

Ph.D. in computational fluid dynamics, Peking University, 2000;  
M.S. in fluid dynamics, Peking University, 1997;  
B.S. in engineering mechanics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, 1992.

 

 

Research interests:

 

Research in the Zhu lab is currently centered at developing bioinformatics methods and tools for basic biomedicine studies. Recently methodology development includes gene finding algorithms for prokaryotes and eukaryotes, gene calling and sequence assembly in metagenomic shotgun reads. The lab also focuses on the regulatory mechanisms studies based on genome sequence and chip data analysis, comparative genomics, molecular evolution, and protein molecular dynamic simulation.
