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.
