Our lab focuses on understanding the mechanisms by which genetic variation influences human traits.
Research Director for the Genetic Counseling Program
We are working on uncovering new diseases, elucidating the causes of disease, and developing therapeutic modalities by connecting the knowledge and methodology of basic science ...
Applying the model-system approach to studies of yeast cell biology and the cellular and molecular biology of the cnidarian-dinoflagellate symbiosis.
We are interested in a broad range of problems at the interface of genomics and evolutionary biology.
Single Cell Genomics
We investigate molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell cycle progression and tumorigenesis.
We study the organizing principles of the genome and how these principles regulate cell identity and developmental switches.
The Sherlock lab studies the evolutionary process using experimental evolution using yeast as a model system.
We have a diverse research program at the interface of computational and functional genomics.
We are presently in an omics revolution in which genomes and other omes can be readily characterized.
The central question behind our work is how the centrosome and primary cilium control cell function and influence development.
The Steinmetz lab develops and applies interdisciplinary, genome-wide technologies to investigate the functions and mechanisms of genome regulation in health and disease.
Research in our laboratory aims to uncover the evolutionary forces that have shaped the patterns of genetic variations.
The Ting lab develops technologies to study and manipulate the molecular properties of living cells, with a particular focus on the proteins and RNA that regulate mitochondria and synapses
Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Major Laboratories and Clinical Translational Neurosciences Incubator) and of Genetics
Understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the faithful inheritance and function of eukaryotic chromosomes.
Work in the Vollrath laboratory is focused on understanding processes in the eye that are relevant to human health and disease.
The goal of our lab is to understand the mechanisms of cancer progression and metastasis.
