In our group we are combining epigenomics, chromosome capture assays, transgenic enhancer experiments and mutagenic studies to determine how cis-regulatory elements and chromatin structure contribute to development and evolution, and how alteration in this non-coding part of the genome affects human health. Specific research interests: Developmental epigenomics; Regulatory landscapes; Interfering with regulatory landscapes in vivo; Cis-regulatory elements and evolution; Cis-regulatory elements and human diseases.
