Rong-Lin Wang

My background and research interests are primarily in areas of population/evolutionary genetics, genomics, computational biology, and their applications in ecological risk assessment. Since joining EPA in 2004, I have been mostly involved in research projects studying molecular biological pathways underlying chemical toxicity and identifying their gene expression biomarkers.
