Wing Wong is a Professor of Statistics and of Health Research and Policy.
Dr. Wong's lab develops methods and software for the analysis of the data from high throughput genomics projects. They developed the software dChip for the analysis microarray data and the programs CisGenome, SeqMap and SpliceMap for the analysis of next generation sequencing data. Their methodological work is motivated by close collaborations with biology groups on problems arising from cancer and developmental biology. Of particular interest is the combined use of experimental and computational analysis to clarify the cis-regulatory mechanisms underlying several developmental processes. More generally, they employ and develop tools from exploratory data analysis, multivariate analysis, information theory, machine learning, Monte Carlo, graph theory, linear and nonlinear differential equations, and applied them to problems in computational biology and system biology.
