- My lab works on identifying critical transcriptional regulators conditionally expressed in specific tissues and under specific stress-induced conditions in species important to systems and synthetic biology, including Arabidopsis and Catharanthus roseus. Related work includes the study of transcriptional regulation of Pol-II protein coding genes and miRNAs through accessible chromatin in plants, machine learning models of Transcription Start Site locations from sequence and chromatin data in plants, functional transcription factor binding site identification in plant promoters, and development of network motif discovery algorithms.
