Research:

How eukarotic cells recognize and interpret the information in the genome, by studying protein-DNA and protein-RNA sequence specificity


Education:

Postdoctoral Fellow:  Rosetta Inpharmatics (now Merck)
Ph.D.:  Baylor College of Medicine
B.Sc., B. Music:  University of Iowa


Fields of Interest:

  • Computational and Systems Biology
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics

Research Interests:

The genome sequence has been described as a blueprint, but it is one that we are largely unable to read.  Our goal is to understand how eukaryotic cells recognize and interpret the information in the genome, by collecting large-scale data on protein-DNA and protein-RNA sequence specificity.
