How does a genome specify the properties of an organism?

This is the central question that we seek to answer. We apply both computational and experimental approaches in our study.

Computational Projects

To design powerful tools for genetic research

Genetic Projects

To identify gene networks underlying development and behavior

Chemical-genetic Projects

To elucidate environmental contexts of genome function


Hypothesis-driven research is a process of two steps: hypothesis generation and experimental verification. We develop and apply high-throughput tools for both steps in our exploration. We use bioinformatics to predict genetic interactions and automation to expedite experimental testing. With this systems biology approach, we expect to bring new insights to genome function.
