Bio/Research

My laboratory is engaged in a long term project to understand how DNA sequence specifies biological form. We are interested not only in the specification of typical form by a typical genome, but also in the effects of variability. Such variability might take the form of genetic variation in a population or intrinsic fluctuations in an individual. These problems touch on issues central to developmental and evolutionary biology, and efforts to solve them have previously led to the development of new branches of mathematics.
