We are developing tools for analyzing the transcriptional regulatory networks of mammals.|
Our goal is to decipher the mechanisms of embryogenesis and organ development
from the statistical signatures of genome sequences.
|Messages to Students|
Computational biology is now growing out of its infancy. |
There are many biological problems that cannot be tackled without its power.
I recommend that you join this promising field.
