Research synopsis

We focus on two major areas: bioinformatics and developmental genomics. In the area of bioinformatics we are building information systems that can facilitate the use of the laboratory mouse as a model system for understanding normative biology and disease processes in humans. In the area of developmental genomics, we are working in collaboration with others to use an understanding of the molecular genetics of normal lung development in the mouse as a framework for identifying key genes and pathways in lung diseases such as cancer and pulmonary fibrosis. Recent projects include generating an integrated data set of mRNA and microRNA profiles over several key developmental time points in murine lung development.
