Self introduction

My major is statistics and its applications and developments in 1) human and veterinary medicine (e.g., human and animals' dementia and its associations with blood molecules), 2) animal husbandry (e.g., milk losses and changes in milk components in non-healthy dairy cows), 3) agriculture. Data types I have been trying to analyze are both molecular-level (omics data including DNA, RNA, protein, metabolite) and individual-level (such as clinical information with age, gender etc of the individual).
