    Research Interests
  • Huang group is working on technology development for integrative biology researches. Our current research interests include genome sequencing technologies, microfluidics, and bioimaging. We are developing a few key advanced technologies to facilitate genome sequencing and its applications, especially the novel chemistry and instruments for DNA sequencing, single-cell genome and transcriptome analysis, as well as epigenomic studies of limited number of cells. We also apply large-scale integrated microfluidic devices to perform quantitative biological studies. We use microfluidic chips to culture cells and to apply the stimuli precisely. By observing the cells' behavior on-chip, we are able to track the stochastic and dynamic life process with single-cell resolution. We are developing new imaging technologies and image processing algorithms to study the dynamics of cells and organisms. We use coherent Raman scattering microscopes to study the chemical distribution in living animals and cells without labeling. Currently we are also working on drug delivery and cancer diagnosis using this label-free technology.
