Dr. Shwen Ho’s research aims at understanding why certain wild tomatoes and Salicornia species can thrive in high salinity condition. Genomics and modern bioinformatics methods are used to elucidate the mechanism behind salinity tolerance with the aim to accelerate its applications into forward genetics. His other research interests include plant genomics, de novo genome assembly, visual analytics and bioinformatics.
With the recent advancement in next generation sequencing technologies, I am interested to use genomics and bioinformatics as a tool to help accelerate scientific discovery both in the field of plant science and on a broader scale across life sciences. Particularly in the integrative approach of combining genomics with powerful genetics and statistics methods to in big data problems.
