    Collapse overview
    Dr. Peng completed his Ph.D. training in 2006 at Rice University with a Ph.D. in Biostatistics. He also received a Master of Arts in Applied Mathematics at Rice University in 2001. He completed postdoctoral training through an NIH R25 Postdoctoral Fellowship in Cancer Prevention, in Genetic Epidemiology from 2006-2008. Dr. Peng has produced more than 40 publications.

    Dr. Peng’s specialties include genetic simulations, epidemiological association analysis, and bioinformatic and next-generation sequencing data analysis. As an open-source advocate and an experienced software developer, he is the author of multiple large-scale software projects, including simuPOP, Variant Tools, and SoS Polyglot Notebook and Workflow System.

      PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
