Research Interests

In broad-spectrum, we employ genome and proteome scale datasets to reconstruct the evolution of various gene families, functional categories and divergence, intraspecific and inter-specific variations, and evolutionary processes that underpin the diversity of our protein/gene families of interest. To mention a few topics, the group is interested in:
1) the expansion of molecular toolkits that underpinned the evolution of chemosensation in early-branching metazoans and other basal invertebrate animals
2) Evolution and diversification of molecular armaments that diversified post vertebrate genome doubling events to combat vertebrate viruses
3) Lineage specific expansions within the 13 major phyla of Lophotrochozoans.
Using our computer-aided approaches, we also aim to investigate untapped GPCRs to extend the prospects of the druggable human genome.
