Our lab is interested in the systems biology and evolution of epigenetic switches (bistability) and clocks (oscillators) in gene regulatory networks, two functions that are essential for proper patterning, cell proliferation, and cellular differentiation in biological systems.
You can learn more about the BuchlerLab by following the link to our humor & art page.
Anyi Mazo-Vargas is a former member of our lab and currently a first-year graduate student in the Reed lab at Cornell. She is studying the evolution of the gene regulatory networks that control wing color patterns in Heliconius butterflies. Congratulations!
Mariana Gomez-Schiavon is talking about the “Evolutionary dynamics of epigenetic switches in fluctuating environments” at the 3rd annual Winter Q-Bio meeting in Hawaii.
