He is particularly interested in developing statistical methods and computational tools to identify genes involved in Mendelian and complex genetic disorders. His work emphasizes the importance of characterizing gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in successfully identifying disease genes. Dr. Kim's research can be applied to various types of experiments, including genomic studies with high-throughput microarray data. His recent work has contributed in understanding the regulation of gene expression in the mammalian eye.[Shorten text]
