Hongsheng obtained his PhD in Statistical Genetics from the University of Hong Kong, and spent seven years in Hong Kong before moving to the USA. He is inspired by the phenomenon of missing heritability for genetic analyses of complex phenotypes. Most of his work and research are aiming to explore and prioritize genetic susceptibility variants, […]
