Research

My Laboratory conducts research in the computational biology (you can call it bioinformatics) of:

  •   Ensemble regulation of transcription based on the ENCODE data
  •   Regulation of genes that code for ribosomal proteins
  •   Transcriptional regulation in the algae, including Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
  •   Next generation sequencing including RNA-seq and ChIP-Seq
  •   Structural principles of nucleosomes and nucleosome mapping,
