Description of Research Expertise

Our laboratory studies the mammalian circadian clock using genomic and computational tools. We use these tools to discover new clock genes, learn how the clock keeps time, and how it coordinates rhythms in physiology and behavior. This clock research drives development of genomic and computational methods that we apply to other areas of biology. Finally, we recognize biological complexity and conduct this research at the network, rather than single gene, level.
