Dynamic regulation of signaling and transcriptional networks in single cells
Lab Description

Our laboratory aims to obtain a quantitative and predictive understanding of how complex biological systems operate and function. We focus on the two complementary directions: systems biology analysis to deconstruct natural systems and synthetic biology to build artificial systems analogous to natural systems.
