About the Lab

Genomes carry our genetic information. But genomes are not just abstract information: they are physically manifested as extremely long molecules that are intricately organized in the nucleus of every cell. The spatial organization of the genome is closely related to how it is accessed, regulated and activated by cellular machinery. We study this profound connection between genetic (and epigenetic) information and its physical organization.

Our lab uses a combination of high-throughput genomic experiments and advanced computational methods, in order to gain a mechanistic understanding of how the genome encodes its organization and how this organization conveys biological function. Read more about our research here.
