Dr. Jin Chen is an Assistant Professor in the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory and the Department of Computer Science &
Engieering at Michigan State
University. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore (NUS) under
the supervision of Dr. Wynne
Hsu, Dr. Mong Li Lee
and Dr. See-Kiong Ng in
2007. He received his Bachelor degree in Computer
Science from Southeast University in China in 1997.
joining MSU, he was a postdoctoral research associate in the bioinformatics
laboratory of Dr. Seung Y.
Rhee at the Carnegie Institution
for Science at Stanford University from December 2006 to August 2009. Before starting his PhD
study, he was a software developer and
then team leader in the Information Center at the Jiangsu Electric Power Company from July 1997
to April 2002.
His research focused on the application of data mining and computer vision algorithms to solve basic biological problems in plant biology. His group develops new computational software packages to address a range of topics, which can be divided into two broad categories. In category 1 plant phenotype data modeling, his research focus is on 2D and 3D leaf alignment, phenotype heterogeneity test, phenotype ontology construction, and phenotype data clustering. In category 2 reconstructing gene networks with omics data, he is interested in high-dimensional subspace clustering on gene expression and protein-protein interaction data, regulatory interaction modeling, biological network reconstruction, and plant organelle function inference. Recently, he is working on the integration of the research lines in the two categories.
