Research Summary

Our lab studies how gene regulatory traits are encoded in DNA sequence, usually in the context of animal embryogenesis. Using whole-genome sequences from related organisms, we are identifying and parsing this regulatory logic for entire genomic sets of regulatory modules underlying either key phylogenetic transitions or important developmental mechanisms, such as morphogen gradient systems.
