Jianhua Ruan, Ph.D, M.S.

Address:

Science Building 4.01.48,
Department of Computer Science,
The University of Texas at San Antonio.

Research Interests:

His research interests lie in the broad area of bioinformatics, computational systems biology, and data mining.

More specifically, his current research is focused on the following three directions: 

  1. Module discovery and analysis in complex networks, with applications in protein complex prediction and microarray data clustering; 
  2. Modeling and analysis of transcriptional/post-transcriptional regulatory networks (e.g. DNA motif finding and ChIP-seq data analysis); and 
  3. Network-based biomarker discovery and disease classification via integrated analysis of heterogonous functional genomics data such as gene expression, protein-protein interactions, and microRNA-mRNA interactions.
