Research Summary

We focus on the genetic architecture of complex traits and mechanisms and evolution of gene regulation. We ascertain uncharacterized sequence variation in plants and worms and resolve the relative importance of additive variation and epistasis in complex traits. We use genome-scale assays for mapping regulatory DNA, including enhancers, and chromosome conformation to explore newly discovered regulatory phenomena in plants, in addition to identifying potentially beneficial regulatory variation among plant strains and species. An important research focus is technology development.
