Research Interests

Research Description

Our lab is interested in the modeling and experimentation of dynamic processes in gene circuits and networks. We are researching the fundamentals to: control fluctuations in gene expression for biasing cellular decision making, characterize dynamics in gene expression, and for drug screening at the single-cell level. Also of interest are systems biology projects by top-down investigation of genome-wide organizational principles using large-scale datasets coupled with modeling and experimentation.
