Developmental enhancers identified by open chromatin profiling in Drosophila embryos and imaginal discs.

Genomics of gene regulation in Drosophila development.

Research in the lab is centered on the fundamental question of how a single genome gives rise to a variety of cell types and body parts during development. This question can be broken into two parts:

  • How are cell fates specified?
  • How are they maintained over time?

We focus on the mechanisms of transcriptional regulation to answer these questions, using a combination of genomics, Drosophila genetics, microscopy, and biochemistry.
