Systems Biology Lab

Welcome to Systems Biology Lab

The research areas of Systems Biology Lab are primarily based on the systems biology approaches and their applications to study

  • Transcriptional regulation of bacterial pathogens including Salmonella and E. coli
  • Anti-microbial resistance
  • Characterization of high-value bacterial strains

We have been applying the systems biology approaches to study bacteria, but there are also collaborators who expect us to apply those approaches to other types of organisms including yeast, fungi, and human cells.

Lab Openings

We are actively recruiting graduate students with biology-related backgrounds including biology, bioengineering, microbiology, or bioinformatics for 2020 Spring semester.

Applicants who are interested are encouraged to contact Dr. Donghyuk Kim (
