Interests

  • Computational Biology
    • My interest lies in the general area of computional biology/bioinformatics. My past experience involves chloroplast genomics, trancriptomics and population genetics. See my notes and scripts on bioinformatics here (a little messy…).
  • Botany
    • I’m the co-founder and former president of Botany Association of Sichuan University. I love writing popular-scientific blog posts about common plants in campus, see links here.
  • Software Developing
    • I’ve written several programs and find it exciting to develop new platforms and helpful softwares. Check my Github for details.
