We are interested in understanding a key question in biology: how development and environmental responses are coordinated across diverse cell types in multicellular organisms? We use of interdisciplinary approaches, including quantitative epi/genomic profiling, modelling and targeted genome engineering, to dissect and design new regulatory modules with the aim of creating novel phenotypes. We are particularly interested in two biological processes? (i) how communication between cells coordinate development and (ii) how complex organisms integrate, store, and retrieve environmental information.
