Active Research Projects
The Control of Transcription Factor Specificity and Activity
We study how transcription factors bind to the correct DNA sequences and regulate the correct target genes in vivo, with a focus on the Hox family of homeodomain proteins.
Motor Neuron Development and Circuitry
We are studying how the neural circuitry that is required for coordinated walking in adult flies is constructed during development, and how it functions in the adult.
Transcription factor paralogs orchestrate alternative gene regulatory networks by context dependent cooperation with multiple cofactors
