New members joined our lab Weifeng Li and Chengbin Hou joined us as PhD students. Weifeng will work on integrating imaging data and biological networks, and Chengbin will work on graph embedding. Welcome (01/10/2017)

Dr Guanbo Jia landed a job He is working as a Research Fellow at Queen's University Belfast. (01/June/2017)

We won runner-up in DREAM Challenge Our team ShanHeLab, lead by PhD student Dong Li participated the Disease Module Identification DREAM Challenge. We combined own algorithm AMOUTAIN (developed by Dong Li) with other methods to identify disease modules from multiple biological networks and achieved the 2nd. Very well done! (09/Dec/2016)

Guanbo Jia passed his viva PhD candidate Guanbo Jia successfully defended his thesis, which proposed novel complex network community detection algorithms. Congratulations! (07/Dec/2016)

Two papers accepted Two papers written by our PhD students Weiqi Chen and Dong Li have been accepted by APBC 2017 (The Fifteenth Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference). Well done! (07/Nov/2016)

New members joined our lab David MacDonald and Han Zhang joined us as PhD students. David will work on feature learning from biological networks, and Han will work on computational methods for metabolite identification. Welcome! (01/Oct/2016)

Wenchi Yang passed his viva PhD candidate Wenchi Yang successfully defended his PhD thesis, which investigates why and how animals evolved collective behaviour using evolutionary neural networks and agent-based modelling. Congratulations! (11/July/2016)
