Dr. Shuhua Xu

Dr. Shuhua Xu is a population geneticist at the CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology. His research has focused on population genomics research of human admixture history and biological adaptation to local environment. The ultimate goal of his research is to understand microevolution mechanisms in human, while genetic admixture was taken as a cut-in point to pursue this ambition.
The Population Genomics Group led by Dr. Xu is using computational approaches and developing new methods to dissect genetic architecture of human populations, quantitatively characterize their admixture features, and reveal their migration history and adaptive divergence.
