About LMU München

Our lab studies the regulation of gene expression in Drosophila at a systems level, using a combination of molecular genetic, biochemical and computational approaches. Current research is focused on deciphering the regulatory networks responsible for generating highly defined spatio-temporal patterns of gene expression during development. A second line of investigation in the lab seeks to...
