Wei is interested in combining systems biology models of
Estrogen Receptor (ER) signalling with a genome-wide map of epigenetic
and genetic determinants of ER in cell lines and primary breast
cancers. Wei is working on the computationally driven experimental
approaches, in which the computational models of ER signalling and
binding guide experiments to more fully understand ER binding
