    Morphogenesis represents a critical and dynamic utilization of genomic information in the life history of an organism, and thus a powerful system for advancing our understanding of genome regulation and function. My work focuses on the establishment and characterization genetic models of embryonic morphogenesis as a means to advance a more quantitative understanding of genome function. The goal of my research is to elucidate the cis-, trans-, and higher order basis of genomic information processing in the context of developing embryos. This processing occurs via the dynamics of transcriptional regulation and intercellular signaling, and is critical for coordinating morphogenic cellular behavior. I am leveraging genome wide approaches and developmental genetics to characterize both evolutionary and pathological variation in regulatory networks controlling morphogenesis along the anterior-posterior axis of the upper jaw.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
