Our lab is interested in how different regulatory mechanisms impact the evolution of thresholds, epigenetic switches (bistability) and clocks (oscillators) in gene regulatory networks. These dynamics and functions are found across biology, and as such, we are not tied to one particular model organism, regulatory network, or experimental technique.

We are currently engaged in active collaborations with the following labs at Duke and elsewhere, and we welcome further interactions:

Lingchong You (Duke)
Xinnian Dong (Duke)
Ashley Chi (Duke)
Raluca Gordan (Duke)
Paul Magwene (Duke)
Jan Skotheim (Stanford)
Markus Proft (Instituto de Biomedicina Valencia, Spain)
Wolfgang Marwan (University Magdeburg, Germany)
Anne West (Duke)
