Research Interests

Current research

Comparative genomics and evolution

    • Evolution of transcription factor binding

Ongoing research

Comparative genomics and evolution

    • Genomics regions associated with duplications, insertions, deletions and disease
    • 7q11 William-Beuren syndrome
    • 7q22 Acute myeloid leukemia
    • Paired immunoglobulin like receptors
    • Segmental duplications
    • Alternative splicing
    • Zonadhesin -- Zonadhesin is a novel gene that is under positive selection and is hypothesized to play a role in the species specific recognition of sperm and egg in mammals (In collaboration with Steve Tardif, Daniel Hardy and Andras Nagy)
    • Ars2 -- Ars2 was first discovered by others as a gene that conferred arsenite resistance to an arsenite sensitive cell line. We characterized this gene in humans and mice and are currently studying the phenotype of Ars2 mutants. This is in collaboration with Andras Nagy, Perry Howard, Robert Burke and Diana Wang.
    • Gnrhr -- This is a collaboration with Dr. Nancy Sherwood and Sheng Wu.
