Min's group is working on analytics related to scholarly output. We are trying to use data sources like Google Scholar to capture the productivity (not just in terms of citation count, or H-index) of scholars in particular fields or international projects. We are currently focusing on the analysis of the Pan Asia SNP project, which has over 90+ collaborators that examined the differences of the genome of the Asian population.
