Bin Liu's lab at Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) is focusing on applying the natural language processing techniques to bioinformatics. The research areas of Bin Liu's lab include:

  • 1) Proposing the language models of biological sequences;

  • 2) Studying the natural language processing techniques;

  • 3) Developing the computational tools for biological sequence analysis;

  • 4) Protein remote homology detection and fold recognition;

  • 5) Predicting DNA/RNA binding proteins and their binding residues;

  • 6) Disordered protein/region prediction based on sequence labelling models;

  • 7) Predicting noncoding RNA-disease associations;

  • 8) Identifying protein complexes;

  • 9) DNA/RNA sequence analysis.
