We study transcription factor regulation using molecular, biochemical, and single molecule techniques.


“Evolution has done the experiments for you. You just need to analyze the results.” This insightful philosophy guides our structure-function analyses of transcription factors.


Using genetics and natural variation, we investigate how mutations affect development, and what underlies the remarkable reproducibility of this complex process.
