The major research interests of Tao Lab are proteome microarray technology and Mycobacterium tuberculosis systems biology.
We are constructing/ developing a variety of protein microarrays and microarray centered cutting edge technologies for both basic research and clinical studies.
The applications that we are currently focusing include protein-protein interaction, post-translational modification and disease biomarker discovery.
Based on our newly constructed Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) proteome microarray, we now have a powerful tool that enables us to tackle Mtb, the causative agent of tuberculosis on systems level in a highly efficient way.
Currently, there are 19 members in our lab, and we are continuously seeking for highly self-motivated people to join us.
