Dr. Wei is principle investigator of Biodynamic Optical Imaging Center (BIOPIC), Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics, Peking-Tsinghua Center for Life Sciences, and School of Life Sciences at Peking University. The research at the center is mainly focused on the development of eukaryotic genome editing tools, especially their applications in high-throughput functional genomics. The combination of forward and reverse genetic means is employed, often in a high-throughput fashion, for the identification of host genes that are important for host response during microbial infections or tumorigenesis.
