Ye Ding, Ph.D.
Our RNA Bioinformatics laboratory has been engaged in algorithms and software tool development for prediction of RNA secondary structure and their applications, with a recent major focus on computational prediction and validation for functional elucidation of regulatory non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), particularly animal microRNAs (miRNAs) and small bacterial RNAs (sRNAs).
Other research interests include potential interaction between miRNAs and N6-methyladenosine modification (m6A), interaction between miRNAs and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with human disease association, regulatory functions of miRNAs for stem cell pluripotency and cell differentiation.
A long-term service obligation to the scientific community is the continuing development and maintenance of the Sfold web server for making our software and database tools freely available to scientists around the world.
