Short Bio

Dr. Jing is a research associate at the Computational Medicine Center, Department of Pathology, Anatomy and Cell Biology, Thomas Jefferson University. His research interests include the investigation of underlying mechanisms and functional behaviors of short and long non-coding RNAs in normal and disease states, the study of differential transcription of non-coding RNAs in tumors and other diseases, and the experimental validation of potential roles of RNAs predicted by computational analysis.
