Genome Lab


관련기사 바로가기

Genome lab performs research on genomes using bioinformatics. Genome Lab is a part of KOGIC. KOGIC is focused on the research and development on all kinds of diseases and aging (Geromics). Wet lab experiments and data production accompanied by bioinformatics technologies are also included. Broadly, we perform multi-omics analysis. We build various reference and standard in genomics. Our lab’s final goal is curing aging using omics technologies.

Major research field

Bioinformatics, Genomics, Geromics (Aging), Reference Genomes, Korean Genome Project, Genomics, Multi-Oomics, Diseaseomics, Variomics, Sequencer, Bio

Desired field of research

Anyone who has any bioscience background is welcome to join our lab. Computer science, Medicine, Psychology, and Engineering school graduates are also very welcome. We are interested in solvoing problems in the field of Biological Aging, Precision Medicine, Diseaseomics, Population genomics, Humonomics (Omics + Human behaviour), Sequencing life.
