Professor of Bioscience and Computer Science
In our laboratory we mainly perform single cell genomics analysis of cells. We use cell culture experiments, and RNA expression analysis. RNAseq, ATACseq, proteomics, and PCR techniques are examples of techniques used. This analysis, generating and reading parts of living cells, is coupled with perturbations such as shRNAi, CRISPR/cas9, and live cell imaging for monitoring. Read more...
