We are a group of computational, systems, and evolutionary biologists broadly interested in molecular evolution, population genetics, and the dynamics and evolution of gene regulatory networks. Our approach is both theoretical and experimental and we try to tackle the big questions in these fields by building on the latest advances in computer science and systems biology.



Apr. 2021congratulations to Dr. Alex for defending his PhD !
Apr. 2021Gurdeep's enhancer paper is out in Genome Research and Ian's enhancer art out on insta.
Feb. 2021Ian's review is out in the FEBS journal. Looks a this wild graphic Ian made:
I think it represents scientific attempts measure single cell variability!
Dec. 2020Check out Amy's other MLCB paper. It's become a lab mantra: Evolution is all you need.
