Wei Lab in Computational Genetics

We develop more accurate and scalable computational methods that utilize massive genomic datasets to gain new insights into fundamental evolutionary processes. Recent work in the lab focuses on understanding demographic history, natural selection, complex traits evolution, and gene conversion.

In this lab, we believe that research should be curiosity-driven, collaborative, and inclusive. We regard all questions worthy, and we encourage people to be inquisitive. We strive to culture an environment where everyone feels fully supported in their scientific pursuits, regardless of age, gender, sex, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, language, culture, origin, and upbringing.

The Wei lab is based in the Department of Computational Biology at Cornell University. To learn more about the goals of the lab, please check out the research and publication pages.
