This laboratory led by Prof. Wei-Cheng Lo has long been utilizing computer science for medical and biological researches. The name 10Lab stands for the fact that this is a digital lab (1 & 0) of Prof. Lo (lower case: lo).
With the assistance of computer science, we are exploring the world by studying the structure and function of biological molecules like proteins and DNA. Our lab is devoted to developing algorithms and computational systems applicable to drug design, protein engineering, biofuel production and environmental protection. Several state-of-the-art web services and novel databases of computational biology have marked us a creative and energetic digital lab.
We are interested in computer aided drug design and have focus our energy on the development of antibody-based drugs for cancers and metabolic syndrome. Professor Lo, the chief of our lab, has been teaching metabolism and health care for years. Some of his lectures and teaching materials that may be good references for health self-management are available at this page.
The lifelong cause of Professor Lo is ecological conservation and environmental protection. Hence, the ultimate goal of the 10Lab is to condense our knowledge and scientific, industrial, and financial resources on species recovery and environment protection. In the near future, several collaborating biotech companies will help us establish a fund for our cause. Professor Lo has been teaching ecology and environmental protection for years, some valuable pictures of endangered species and his teaching materials can be found here.
